Days 10-17. Our stay in St. George, Utah

We arrived at my good friend Kelli’s house in St. George, Utah 3 days early – broken and tired from a rough start to our trip. We were able to park the camper in Kelli’s side yard and took the car into the local Toyota dealership for repairs. We all settled in and took advantage of the Wifi, air conditioning and the modern conveniences of living in a house.

We were supposed to camp at a nearby state park, but Kelli and her fiance’ Kevin convinced us to stay for the entire week at their house due to the extremely hot temperatures (105 degrees) during June/July. It didn’t take too much arm twisting before I was online canceling our camping reservations.

By the next day, Erin was feeling better and we made plans for the week. Some highlights include:

  • Girl’s Day Out with massage, pedicure and lunch at Red Mountain Spa
  • Car repair only took one day and seemed to be fixed
  • Dinner at Cliffside Restaurant
  • Hiking the Narrows at Zion National Park
  • Kayaking and a picnic at Kolob Reservoir
  • Brunch at Xetava
  • Teaching Kelli and Kevin a new board game every night

Day 9. Destination St. George, Utah

A mama and baby elk decided to visit us the morning we left the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. In fact, the mama came right up for a drink while Nancy and Erin were washing their hands at the sink outside the bathrooms. She decided to rip down the flyer for preserving water before getting her nose in the sink. Nancy made sure to stand clear.

We absolutely had to get the suspension in our towing vehicle fixed, so we made arrangements to skip our next destination and head directly to St. George where we would find a Toyota dealer and one of our best friends in the world, Kelli.

Given that she works at home and we didn’t want to get in her hair, we planned to camp in Snow Canyon against Erin’s protests of “I want to get in her hair!”. But best friends don’t let you camp in temperatures of 105 and Kelli insisted we spend the week with her and her fiance, Kevin. In her extreme lethargy, Erin breathed a sigh of relief and proceeded to pass out on the couch.

The views on this trip have been beyond our Florida east coast comprehension and the ride out of the Grand Canyon did not disappoint. We even spotted an antelope standing as a lone sentinel on top of a hill. Epic!
