After a week in San Diego and with Cathie’s mother in the hospital, but on the road to recovery, we decided to continue the road trip with the week in the middle missing. We left home early and drove straight through to Escalante, Utah. We will spend a couple of days here before our scheduled hike to The Wave. Due to the emergency at home, we missed the White Rim Trail in Canyon Lands National Park, but we probably would have had to cancel anyway due to lots of rain. We will explore Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument as long as the weather holds. Rain and snow are expected tonight so we opted for a motel. Hey, we like adventure but draw the line a 25 degrees! BLM web site is here:

While still in Zion, one evening we decided to have dinner with a view. We drove to a view spot on the Zion Tunnel Road and with our new camping kitchen prepared a dinner of salad, Jambalaya with the appropriate wine. An enjoyable meal with the best view in Zion.

Stay Tuned............
