Spooky and Peekaboo Slot Canyons

  After being hulled up in the motorhome for a few days of nasty weather, we were chomping at the bit to get out and have an adventure in Grand-Staircase Escalante National Monument.  We had been in the area for a few days just waiting for the weather to clear up so we could explore.  Finally, we got a break in the cold, windy weather and headed over to Spooky and Peekaboo Slot Canyons.  We had been told by several locals that these were the best ones in the area, and they were rated as “easy” so as novice...

Boondocking Near Capitol Reef

Boondocking near Capitol Reef We have really come to love and appreciate some good boondocking campsites!  We found another pretty stellar site for boondocking near Capitol Reef in Utah.  Capitol Reef National Park is between Torrey and Hanksville, in southern Utah.

Dinosaur Fossils in Moab

Dinosaur Fossils in Moab After mountain biking along the Monitor-Merrimac trail (click here for more info on that!), we came to a gravel parking lot that was the start of a short nature hike to the Mill Canyon Dinosaur Trail.  This is a great (and free) place to see dinosaur fossils in Moab.  We highly recommend parking your bike for a moment and taking this short hike; it’s worth it!  If you aren’t mountain biking the Monitor-Merrimac trail, you can also access the Mill Canyon Dinosaur Trail via car on a dirt road just about 13 miles north of...
