We left yesterday as planned, August 8th and headed South and eventually to Utah. I left Kay in Tehachapi to spend some time with her daughter and grand kids while I went on to Barstow to visit my mom and brother. I returned to Tehachapi for a few days to not only pick up Kay but to spend some time with the kids and grand kids. Here is Moose during football practice.
On the 14th we headed out on the 400 mile stretch to Panguitch. Just West of Las Vegas is controversial and massive new solar plant, sprawling over 1,670 acres , Crescent Dunes Solar Energy Project is covered with more than 10,000 mirrors, each the size of a small house, that track the sun throughout the day and focus it on a receiver filled with molten salt. The salt, heated to almost 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit, stores the energy as heat, so it’s always ready when it’s needed, night or day.
Once we arrived at my brothers place in Utah it was not long before we jumped into the Polaris RZR’s for a quick ride and basically an introduction for me on driving off road as it has been many years since I have done so. We also took the fishing boat over to Otter Creek reservoir and put it into a slip so we can fish on the days we are not riding the RZR’s in the beautiful mountains of southern Utah.
Thanks to Craig’s daughter and son-in-law (Sean & Brandee) who loaned me their RZR for the time we are in Utah so the 4 of us had two RZR’s, Craig, Deb and Charlie (dog) in one and Kay, Mic (dog) and I in the other. Looking forward to a really cool time up here.
So many beautiful rides just starting from our driveway. Different ride each day or a day on the water fishing. It was not long before we needed to take a day off and just relax.
The next day the 4 of us went for a drive to Marysvale to a really cute restaurant. The food was great atmosphere was awesome.
After two weeks having so much fun with my brother and his wife we left on August 29 and headed over to Zion National Park. We will explore there for a few days and then head down to Lake Powell and explore there for while.
