Where I stayed
BEST WESTERN East Zion RV Park
Our current location is in a small junction called Mount Carmel. We have a simple, full-hookup site at a very reasonable rate.
We took an exploratory trip into Zion NP. We were scouting out a campsite for tomorrow night, Friday. The trip in from Mount Carmel is truly breathtaking. The colors, shapes and textures of these mighty mountains will surely take your breath away. If you haven't been, put it on your bucket list or some such.
We talked with a ranger about a site with hookups, but due to the weekend there's no chance. They do have from twenty to sixty openings in the other campground, named South, each morning. We checked it out and saw several with a check-out date for tomorrow. Lynn talked with a camperlady there and she said that they got there about nine in the morning and just asked campers if they were leaving. They got a site.
I've been remiss in editing my photos, so tonight I'll have around forty to do. I'll put them on Flickr, as usual, for you to see. A few of you have tried it and I don't believe you've suffered any ill effects. I may be wrong, since I have been before...a few times. :o)
Hopefully I'll be writing in the park tomorrow, so stop by and see what gives, if you have the time and an inkling.
