We were heading east past Price and Helper in the canyons then southeast toward Moab. Before we got to Moab we turned off Hwy 191 onto Hwy 128 into BLM land looking for our campsite for the night. We arrived early around noon and luckily were able to get into Goose Island Campground which is the closest to Moab and one of two that will accommodate big rigs.
We carefully backed into #15 which was a big site next to the Colorado River and an awesome view of the red rock canyon walls all around us. It was hotter than we hoped and with NO hookups we had to adjust our thinking about boon docking! Took a nap waiting for the sun to set behind the canyon wall and hopefully cool off. We grilled one of our big trout from Idaho for dinner and enjoyed the peace and quiet. Bad thing about this location is the canyon is narrow and the road is close so you have traffic noise until dark. It did drop down to about 90 degrees by dark so we went to bed with all windows open and finally got some relief about 2 AM.
