Crossing Into Utah

Monday July 22nd we left Rawlins driving through Rock Springs and into Utah.  We drove on the eastern route into the Ogden area thereby by-passing Salt Lake City and its traffic on I-15.  Saw some great scenery as we came through the canyons and into the Wasatch Valley.  As arid as this area is they have utilized irrigation from the reservoirs built to capture water from snow melt and runoff.  The Mormons realized the potential of this area when they arrived in the 1800s and everywhere you look are farms and orchards.  Our Rand McNally RV GPS unit routed us up the main street of Ogden (Hwy 89 north) and we saw many of the painted ponies on every corner and shown here.  We headed to Perry, UT and pulled into the KOA there.  Not usually our choice but this one was located off the main highway, quiet, small and easy to access.  So we got a premium spot pull thru with 50 amps and a large concrete patio and wooden table, chairs, and swing.  Grass for the girls shaded by big trees and no wind made it a good choice.  We set up then drove 2 miles up the road and bought some fresh fruit.  After that we got a burger for dinner then went to the movies to see “Red 2”.  Kinda crazy movie but was fun and a good break from all the driving.  We were back in time to sit outside with the girls and enjoy our view of the Great Salt Lake and a good sunset.
