Exploring Sedona And Jerome, Arizona

Sedona, AZ Sedona, AZ First Sedona, Arizona. Well….we were not expecting what we found. With all the hype that everyone talks about Sedona, we were anxious to get there and explore. We’ve been trying for a couple years now to get to this town but things just never lined up quite right. This time, we left Cottonwood early (Sedona’s only a half hour drive) so we would have the whole day to explore. The drive in to Sedona was beautiful. The red rocks and high peaks, gorgeous. When you get into town, not so much. While we were there...

Dead Horse Ranch State Park In Cottonwood, Arizona

Traveling Interstate 40 Eastbound Towards Flagstaff, AZ At the beginning of December we spent 6 days in Cottonwood, Arizona at Dead Horse Ranch State Park. This was our first time at this park and from what we experienced, it won’t be our last. First of all, it was pretty easy to get to with our 45 foot motor home and tow. The sites themselves are very large and well spaced apart and the loop that we stayed in had water and 50 amp electric at every site. A dump station was located towards the entrance to the park. Dead Horse Ranch State Park In Cottonwood, AZ Dead Horse Ranch State Park In Cottonwood, AZ As you can see, we were pretty alone at this park this time of year. The weekend had a few more people but no where near at capacity. Sites are reserved online and the nice thing is if you hover over the site number on the map, it will pop up a window showing you what the site looks like, what accommodations are at the site and what length vehicle it can support. So this really takes the guessing out of booking. Google Maps is also a great tool to get a nice overhead shot of the park and figure out which way you want to face or if there are any trees or such...

Valley Of Fire State Park, Nevada

Valley Of Fire State Park is Nevada’s oldest and largest state park, just an hour north of Las Vegas and close to Lake Mead and the Hoover Dam. A great get away if you find yourself in the area. While we had been to Valley Of Fire State Park before back in 2011, and you can read our previous posts here, here and here, we had to go back. As a matter of fact, it was high on our list of places to visit again. And we are so glad we did.  First of all, Valley Of Fire State Park does have a great campground for big rigs. The downside is that it is a no reservation, first come, first serve campground. So while you may find yourself in need/want of a campsite, you may be disappointed. We luckily were not and found a great site.  We arrived on a Wednesday, which I firmly believe helped in the matter of finding an open site, we also arrived before 10am. There is a separate RV only area in the campground that has large sites with water and electric (50amp). So they are not full hook-up, they will do for a while before you have to go to the dump station, which is right at the beginning of the campground road. While all the sites, whether they are in the rv...

Fun In Moab, Utah

When people find out that you travel full-time in a motor home the question always comes up of, “Where is your favorite place that you have travelled to?” This question is always difficult to answer because the States that we have explored so far are all so different. You have the areas with the Great Smokey Mountains, the Rocky Mountains, the Gulf Coast states, the Northeast with their Fall Colors and shore lines, the Texas Hill Country (one of our favorites) and then there is Moab, Utah and the surrounding area with all of their red rocks. As you may recall, we have been to Moab, Utah before. A couple of years ago in fact. You can read all about our adventures here and here. We had such a great time last time we were in Moab that we kept saying that we had to go back. Well, we finally made it back and it still did not disappoint. We stayed at the same place, Portal RV Resort, which is just a great place to stay. (tell them we said so. :)) You know how sometimes you visit a place and what you remember is not how it actually is? Well, Moab and Portal RV Resort were just how we remembered and then some. In turn, we went back to some of the same restaurants that we remembered as good and...
