At 6pm our weary travellers really did feel like characters from the Old Testament. (Side note: the Mormons who settled this park named it Zion in reference to the Mt. Zion in the OT. Zion means Sanctuary. We agreed (3 of us atleast, another thinks it is 851 So. Lewis). We actually needed an escort to traverse one tunnel in the park on our way to the camp ground. How cool is that????? Our campground is very tranquil. It is right on the Virgin River. The kids would like it because you can launch tubes right from the campground. We are right at the main entrance to the camp. We settled in and set up camp. Actually, John did it all. He is setting up the rig like a pro. We even got out the leveling blocks like the big rigs. We ate outside under the stars and ALL agreed that this was our best meal yet. The food was wonderful, but I think the setting had little bit to do with it. Tomorrow John and I want to take the shuttle back into the park. There are many part that we cannot access without the park provided transportation. Mom and Dad are going to hang back. The Big Red Machine says he doesn't want to see anymore mountains as long as he lives and Salmo hasn't napped in days. Right now I am blogging under the stars. My compadre and I set out together to find wireless as the camp doesn't have it. He headed back but I had no shame and am picking up a random signal I found on my walk. More tomorrow....Also, special love and thanks to Mo for letting me have a few extra days....XO The pics are on John's computer....I am going to see how far I can take this signal using a trick I learned????? Love to Everyone
