What's New With Us

March has been a relaxing month for us. We have enjoyed amazingly picturesque camping in western Utah. The first week of March, we moved up Interstate 15 from our previous location at Snowbird Mesa in southwest Nevada and landed in Sand Hollow State Park near St. George, UT.

After three straight months of off-grid camping, the waste tanks needed good flushing, so we booked into the full hookup camping section of the park for a few days. While there, we scouted out the primitive camping area and decided to move across the lake to it and ended up extending our stay by 12 days.
The scenery was hard to beat. We were treated to many warm days in the 70s (20s Celcius) and endured several blustery chillier days as cold fronts moved through. Sort of a mixed bag, not uncommon as spring approaches the high country.

Sand Hollow SP makes a great base station to explore the area. One memorable afternoon was a scenic drive into the Kolob Canyons, a lesser-visited section of the famous Zion National Park. We hit it just right, still with lots of snow on the red rock formations but drive pavement and barely any people.
The end of March has seen us move further up in elevation along Interstate 15 to the Great Salt Lake. Spring weather had been pretty nice in the Salt Lake City area. We even experienced a few days hitting up near 80F (26C),
Our first hop was to a Wildlife Management Area near Holden, UT where we overnighted just off Intersate 15 for a night. Camping was free and had some nice views of the nearby snow-covered hills. We were at around 6000 feet.
Next, we stopped off for 3 days at a free BLM dispersed camping area called Miners Canyon on Lake Utah. The views were amazing across the calm lake towards Provo, Utah. But be warned the area has quite a bit of trash on the ground and gets sort of rowdy on the weekend.
While in the area, I stopped by the Lion Energy headquarters in American Fork, UT, and met a bunch of the folks there. I was amazed at how large their operation has become. As you know, I've reviewed several of their products in the past. I'm still using the UT1300 lithium batteries I installed a few years ago.

It was good to meet in person and talk about the products. I let them know the good and bad and how they could improve stuff for us RV boondockers. They appreciated my real-world feedback and gave me a sneak peek at a few new products they are working on.
For the final four days of March, we are enjoying camping at Antelope Island State Park. It's an island located in the famous Great Salt Lake. There are huge beautiful campsites for $20 a night off-season rate and $30 for the full hookups.
Gorgeous scenic drives, hiking trails, beaches, and scads of wildlife including Bison. Stay tuned I should have a video about it out soon!
