Harry and Judy's RV Trip
26th Jun 2015 - Summer 2015
Day 26-June 26, 2015-Lazy Day To Wellington, UTAH

Day 26-June 26, 2015-Lazy Day to Wellington, UT

Drove 160 miles in 3 hours.  Really hot today, almost 100.

Took I-15 from Ogden, through Provo.  Busy, busy road.  Lots of trucks, cars and construction vehicles.  Buildings going up everywhere.  The mountains are being removed, relocated and re-arranged to accommodate people, stores and developments.  Lots of shopping centers, outlets and new housing creating new mini-cities.

Got off I-15 at Spanish Fork onto route 6-more our style.  Again up the mountain, down into the canyons, around the bends.  No snow on the mountains in the distance, people told us it was a mild winter, they had very little snow, it all went to Boston and New York.  They suffered because the skiing was no good.  The railroad was with us all the way along with a nice little river.  The mountains are getting rockier and redder and the boulders bigger.  Saw sheep grazing along the side of the road but not many horses or cows.  Pretty little pink flowers all along the side of the road and a few windmill generators.  Biggest towns we passed were Helper, an old mining town and Price, where we tried to get a campsite but they were having a huge Mormon Miracle Pageant for the next two weeks.  We ended up in Wellington on Route 6.  There are a few RV sites behind a hotel.  We pulled in early, about 1PM and only hooked up the electric, no water or sewer, we’re only here overnight.  We had lunch, looked at maps and made some more reservations.  We’re having a hard time finding places now because of the Fourth of July holiday but I think we’re all set now.  We have use of all of the amenities of the hotel and we took advantage of the nice indoor pool which is heated to about 89.  We had it all to ourselves.  It felt nice going in but could have been a bit more refreshing if it was a couple of degrees cooler.  I know, I’m picky..too cold...too warm.  There’s a restaurant attached, “The Outlaw” but we ate in the RV.  It’s hot and we’re parked right in the sun. But the humidity is 12% compared to 78% at home.  Supposed to go down to 65 tonight.  We can’t wait for the sun to go down, but our swim suits dried in about 10 minutes.
