I am enjoying my stop here on Lake Roosevelt. I hope someone will set the sunrises to music. Ravel’s Bolero maybe.
Roosevelt Lake is a great find and I’ve decided to stay for a week. Spacious sites, each with a barbecue pit and an undercover aluminum table for 8. Clean bathrooms, free solar-warm showers, a dump station open a few hours a week, and a million-dollar views. Cliff dwellings are nearby and accessible. Nice visitor centers by both the National Park and National Forest Services. Lots of facilities for fisherman. All this for $6/nite and 50% off for Golden Age Passports. At 3000′ the weather is wonderful, 50 degree nights and high 70s during the day.
I will stick around here for a week then head for Payson and Sedona for a couple of weeks. I will save New Mexico for the next pass through the southwest. Next leg of the journey will be Utah and the National Parks along the Colorado River, Once again I solicit your advice and suggestions: small towns, scenic vistas, unusual sights, dry camp sites, fairs, festivals, events. For now let’s just talk about northern Arizona and Utah.
Left to my own maps, I head for Zion. Then Cedar Breaks to Bryce to Grand Staircase Escalante to Canyonlands and Arches.
I will ask again when I know which way my compass is pointing from southern Utah.
Thanks in advance for all your thoughts.
