First night in Utah

We arrived in Utah yesterday, set up camp with our friends, Robbie and Alice, who we will share the camp host duties at Arches National Park and have been our tour directors for the last week. We, again, have very poor Internet but hope to get a short blog off (2 pictures) as a little tease of where we are and what we have seen in the last few days.

We stood on the corner in Winslow Arizona, visited the Petrified Forest and Dick found an area outside the park where he collected 38 pounds of petrified wood for tumbling and whatever.

Then off to see the Painted Desert on our way to Chinle Arizona and the beautiful Canyon de Chelly and finally into Utah where we are camped at Goosenecks State Park 1000' straight above the San Juan River. We are on the edge of the cliff so have a view straight down from all our windows.

When we get to a place with better internet we will share more details and pictures of each location, should be late next week.

Here is the view from our dining table, and yes, at the lower left is the edge of the cliff. We have to remember to watch the first step when we come out of our rig.

And the view out our back window, must remember to walk close to the rig when going around the back. It's cool here with snow in the forecast so we maybe here most of the week. Arches has 14" of snow with another 3 in the forcast today and again on Sunday.

To be continued...

It looks like you are right on the edge of the cliff! I'm hoping to connect w/ you guys via phone tomorrow (am working all day and have been pulling some really late nights). I'd love to come visit late March early April!

OMG, that looks so scary out your windows! Beautiful area, but from the angle definitely on the edge!

I can't even look at that! I never considered myself afraid of heights but I know I couldn't stay there for too long.
