Red Tug Alert! Well who would have thought that the SECOND sightseeing attraction today in Zion National Park was Kismet, the little red tug. Everywhere we stopped to pull over, people seemed more interested in taking photos of our boat than the scenery. I’ll have to admit, we did stand…

Finally getting into the rockiness of Nevada, Utah and Arizona. Our goal is to arrive at Lake Powell beginning of the week and we’ve picked a great driving route that will allow us some arid vistas and views. Although we’re not really stopping to sightsee along the way we’ve enjoyed…
