(Sorry! I Incorrectly named the thread Rawlings, WY. This was supposed to be its name. I discovered it too late to delete it. Maybe the mods can transfer the information to this thread.)

Uinta NF, UT

When entering this National Forest at Provo, UT, we took the road that takes the visitors all the way through the forest. It's spectacular viewing when the leaves are changing. The picture was taken during a ski lift ride to the top and back down. Not recommended for those that have a problem with high places.

Click a second time on the picture for full view.

This is a picture of a very small church on the Hearst properties at San Simeon, CA. The buildings atop the hill in the background are part of the Hearst Castle complex.

When the crappie school-up and enter these deep water canals, so do those that like to catch and eat them. These waters normally produce above average sized crappie.

While at a stop at the Hollywood Resort & Casino RV Park at Tunica, MS we took an all day van tour to Memphis. We had lunch at a rustic 1960s restaurant on Beale St. The tour took us to the famous places in the music district. When leaving there we passed-by the Lorraine Motel where Martin Luther King was murdered.

One year while full timing, we attempted staying at San Diego for a few of the winter months. Right after Christmas it started raining. It lasted for days and was causing mud slides in some of the valleys. We were parked in one of them so we packed-up and went east over the mountains to El Centro, CA.

While Christmas shopping in the quaint little village of La Jolla, we saw this Christmas tree made from potted poinsettia plants.

Those are some cool pictures. I have been to most of those places. The seals are always next to San Simeon. We like to go there to get away. We usually get a room on the beach. One of the nicest places in Ca. Hearst Castle is amazing. If you go to that area you need to take the tour. We also went across the Mackinaw bridge. It was very cool. There was a lot to do in that area. We even found a waterfall and got lost. If you ever get ti that area you have to visit Mackinaw island. They got fudge there. You won't believe how much LOL.

Sorry for the highjack

A visit to Sedona will make you a 'shutter bug". We have hundreds of pictures taken there, here's an example.

The Chapel of the Holy Cross is a Roman Catholic chapel built into the buttes of Sedona, Arizona. The chapel is under the Episcopal see of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Phoenix and its ministry is conducted by St. John Vianney Parish, Sedona.

Does Sedona remind you of the Cars movie?
I missed that church when we went there. We stayed in Williams and drove there. It was down a long hill. What a beautiful drive. Was thinking about moving there. Did you happen to ride in the pink jeeps? The took us out in the desert for a little cruise.

We never took the desert tours. However, we did explorer just about everywhere our truck would take us. We took a lot of pictures of rural areas; here's an example.

If you want a really good experience stay at least one night on the island. It's quite different when the "Fudgies" have all left on the last ferry of the day

On a day trip to the Salton Sea (237í below sea level) from our RV Parking site at Yuma, AZ, we crossed into CA and took CA-111 up the east side of the lake. Then we crossed over to CA-86 to transit down the west side back to I-8.

Iím pretty sure those that invested in property there made a very unwise decision. The sea water stinks-up the whole area. Itís worse than dead fish. Best description, itís STINKY!

When visiting upstate Michigan you can take I-75 all the way to the CDN border. Thatís where youíll find the little city of Sault Ste. Marie (USA) and the Soo Locks.

The little city is a tourist site, loaded with trinket shops and street side cafes. However, the main attraction is the Soo Locks and the boat rides. We were there to experience everything. In the pictures our boat was a white USA owned boat. The yellow one is CDN owned. Our ride consisted of a trip up the CDN lock and return in a USA lock. There were RV Parks on both sides of the waterway. We were parked at Mackinaw City and the trip to the locks was what we call a long side trip.

If youíre going to visit Manitoba and come back across the ND border I suggest you do better highway homework than I did. There was no warning about the construction on this highway until within 5 miles. It was too late, we were committed. Iím surprised we didnít have some tire failures

This little city with its large beaches is a great place to visit. You can lounge on any of the beach areas with hardly anyone else there. Do some surf fishing and then go to town and have a meal at one of the many restaurants/cafes. You can’t miss it when traveling on CA highway 1, the beautiful costal highway.

Wells Beach, ME

Itís just a short drive across a causeway from US-1 to Wells Beach. Itís a popular smallish summer resort stop with a nice, easy to access beach. Plenty of places to eat and the parking areas are not hard to find.

I was raised at North Berwick, ME, just a short drive away. It was our go-to beach. All those buildings on the waterfront were not there when I was a kid. When they built a bowling alley there, I was about 12 and would go there and set pins for 5 cents a string Ė candlepins.

1000 Islands Ė upstate NY

A treasure at the St. Lawrence River as it flows northeast to the Gulf of Saint Lawrence. As you start reading about it in the NY State brochures you just know youíre going to explore sections of it, especially the 1000 Islands section.

We parked at the Massena International Kampground RV Park for a two week stay. It is halfway between two side trips we wanted to make. One was for this story and the other was a trip to Montreal. The CG is just a short distance to the seaway bridge and an hour to Montreal (another story).

From our CG we drove down the scenic highway along the river to Alexandria Bay. Itís where the river tour boats from the USA side depart and return. There is ample parking at the ticket locations but a little tight for a dually. The tour will take a whole day. On the way out there is a stop at Boldt Island. They have a number of shops there and you can take a tour of the Boldt Castle. When done you can take another outgoing tour boat Ė no cost Ė to finish the tour of the major section of the 1000 islands. The tour boat cost was not super expensive and the snack shop on it had very reasonable prices.

Our tour was on a beautiful clear day with little breezes. I must have taken 200 Ė 300 pictures.
