Quoted From A Fellow Traveler:

Life is short, Break the rules, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, And never regret anything that made you smile. Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we should dance.

A Stop At Zion and On to Page Az.

We checked the campground in Zion and was full.
We stayed at Zion a few years back and the campground was really in tough shape so we really didn't care if we stayed or not. Our plan was to drive through the park.
You could see the change in the terrain as we got closer.
We are here!
The beauty of Zion is really something to see.
Because of low clearance tunnel and winding road, we had to unhitch the Jeep.
So as we travel, Joyce took the pictures from the Jeep as I drove the coach.
It's really a very scenic road to drive. The beauty is all around you.
Even I had to stop when I could to enjoy the sights.
That is a side hole in the mountain, that brings light and air into the tunnel.
There is a fifteen dollar charge to take the coach through the tunnel. Reason is, the tunnel is limited on the height (13' 1") so all traffic must be stopped so I can travel through the tunnel by driving down the center.
The view on the other side of the tunnel is just as great.
 STOP.......!
After hooking up the Jeep again, we traveled through this small tunnel.
Once on the other side of this smaller tunnel, things look so much different.
We say goodbye to Zion.
A short ride brought us to Kanob.
A nice little town.
More pushing down the road
 This looked like a big building from a distance.
Time to stretch our legs.
Cool rock formation.
Then we found a great place to camp for $5 a night. There was water and a dump site.
This is Glen Canyon Nat. Rec. Area "Lone Rock", and we are parked right on the beach. 
Casey loved the water........
And we loved the view, so we splurged and paid for two nights.
Now if we can only get Casey out of the water.
