Erika really wanted to go to the four corners monument. this monument is at the point where the 4 states of Utah, Arizona, New Mexico and Colorado meet. So we headed first to Green river. We found a nice and cheap campsite. We decided to stay a couple of nights as they had a laundry so it gave us chance to catch up on some chores and charge all our electrical equipment. When camping it does cause us some issues keeping everything charged. We do have charge points on Liberty but it is good to just stop, catch up on social media and chill.
The next day we headed off towards Moab, we had been told that it was a great place to stop, however it was Labour day so it was heaving, we decided to just keep going. We had booked a campsite near Monument Valley. What a site, very basic but the views, wow they were amazing, we were also the only ones staying so we had it all to ourselves.
The next morning we headed to the Four Corners Monument it was so beautiful driving through the desert, on empty roads. It was a tourist destination so there was a few people there. We didn't have to wait long for our photo on the monument.
We did read afterwards that it has been proven that it isn't actually in the correct place its about a mile off the exact location. but hey it was close enough for me.
We had a long ride from here. We had hoped to camp in the Capitol Reef National Park but we couldn't find a campsite that was open or had availability. Capitol Reef was stunning, I would love to show you more photos but it was hot and we were tired and just pushed on to find a campsite.
We eventually did find one in Hanksville, but it was by far the worst campsite we have stayed on so far. it was like setting up a tent on a building site next to a junk yard. Just awful, but beggars cant be choosers.
The next day we didn't hang around for long and then set off towards Bryce Canyon. It had started to heat up so after camping for 5 straight days I needed a bed and a little luxury so I booked us into a lodge for two nights near Bryce Canyon. I was so glad I had, it was so nice to have some creature comforts. Mainly a bed, aircon and a bathroom.
We headed off to Bryce Canyon and I have to say I have never seen anything like it, It was beautiful. The photos we have do not do the colours in the rocks justice. What we have found is that each National Park is so different. In Bryce you are elevated and are looking down on the Canyons, you can literally see for miles and miles.
In the next update I will tell you about Zion National Park and the Grand Canyon.
