Rise and Shine

Michael, Callie, and I made it to Zion River RV Park after a 12-hour drive at 7 pm and it was a long day for all of us. Callie loves being on the road though and helps navigate on the dash as if her life depends on it. Yesterday’s adventure was just a tad bit too long though and I could tell she was wondering when we would get there.

When we finally did set up camp, which now includes disconnecting the Tracker, Michael and I quickly changed into swimsuits and dashed over to the hot tub to soak our weary muscles and joints before it closed at 9. Sitting for so long when you are a senior citizen makes you stiff and achy! The wisdom of aging is that you aren’t as restless and a long day of travel is just part of the overall scheme of things. The three of us really had a fabulous day and are now reaping the rewards of reaching a lovely destination.

The hot tub was divine and a quick BBQ of veggie and salmon burgers were grilled with Callie being fed her favorite Science Diet nuggets, and off to bed, we went. I woke up with my usual rise and shine energy along with Callie and we took a fabulous walk before all of the dogs got up. It is bright and fresh outside with a fragrant breeze rustling the cottonwoods. A delicious breakfast shall be served as soon as my exhausted husband wakes up. Michael is going to try and find out if we can get into the north rim of the Grand Canyon, and if so, we may head out again. If not, we will stay here and take the bikes out for a trail ride. I vote we stay put for a couple of days and check out the local mountain trails and of course, Zion!

      Darnell, when you get old and wise like us, 😘I bet with your writing skills, you too shall do what we are doing. Thanks for reading my blog posts. If it weren’t for readers like you, I would be living in a vacuum.

    Great that there is a hot tub in the RV park! You must see Zion…hopefully the crowds have dissipated. We are the last to go back to school here in the Northeast and it starts up next week.

      We were at Zion in April of this year and loved it so much we decided to come back. You still have to take the shuttle in but we managed to go to the reservoir today and no one was there. Took some awesome photographs but my camera battery needs to be replaced. Fortunately I took some with the iPhone too!
