Final month we settled into a pleasant little spot within the Dixie nationwide forest in Leeds, Utah. We had visited the identical spot earlier than about 2 weeks prior however determined to not setup camp there as a result of it appeared crowded and too near the principle highway. At second look about, we modified our minds and truthfully it might have appeared excellent this time round as a result of we had no the place else to go. lol.
After getting settled in we realized that it wasn’t so dangerous in spite of everything. The Mountain View from the entrance of our tent was loopy cool. I liked waking up simply to open the door and see what they regarded like that day. They had been at all times altering. We might see it snow on the mountain ceaselessly however it by no means reached us. Then we’d watch it soften off all through the day. The children had these big rocks to climb on and loved enjoying on them each day.
Additionally they discovered this cool kiln that was used to make charcoal. There have been a lot of locations to discover. Even the drive out and into city was a scenic one. There have been remnants of previous stone homes in all places all through the mountains. Wooden was just a little tough to return by right here however we had an awesome water supply and located some wooden pallets that somebody had dumped. These lasted us some time. Our photo voltaic panel was capable of totally cost by midday which was very good, however cell reception was not all that nice. I needed to drive the youngsters down the highway each day in order that they may do their faculty work.
I used a part of my time right here to make some kind of stand for the Dutch oven in order that I might try to make bread once more. Final time the underside burnt so I used to be making an attempt totally different methods to maintain the underside away from direct warmth as a lot as attainable.
We went and explored some lava tubes. They had been like little caves that you may go down into. Items of lava rock coated the bottom in all places above and it was tough to stroll by means of. I believed for certain I’d step on a pointy piece and it could pierce by means of my shoe!
Our time at this specific web site was brief lived. After about 3 weeks the park ranger confirmed up and requested us to maneuver on. Based on him, it was a preferred web site for vacationer and we had been hogging it! Lol. ALL of the campers we had seen within the space had pop up tents or RV’s. I’m certain it’a lots simpler for them to pack up and go away than it’s for us. Shifting our tent is sort of a mini shifting day for somebody with a small home. With 5 folks residing in a 168 sq. foot area, it takes us a full 8 hour day to pack up and get setup someplace else. However we started scoping out a number of the areas round us and located a spot about 20 minutes up the highway.
We mentioned goodbye on our final day there and watched a tremendous sundown mild up the evening sky with sensible colours of purple, pink and orange throughout a darkish blue canvas.
Seems to be prefer it’s on to the following spot…
