|We stopped at the Utah Visitor Center as we headed to Provo, Utah. This state Visitor Center was not nearly as impressive as Texas', but we were able to attain a lot of information for things we wanted to see and do. On our way into the Visitor Center we were greeted by a little wildlife of Utah.
While in Hagerman, ID our 3rd surge protector quit working so we needed to go to a city that had a Camping World. We stayed at Lakeside RV Campground, which we had stayed at on our way to the Las Vegas Rally some years ago. Little different weather, last time in the snow, this time in the rain. We had several days of rain, but it cleared the air so we could see again amidst all the forest fire smoke. Only problem with this area is all the interstate highway construction. They said all the work is suppose to be done by December, but right now it is a challenge to get through from Salt Lake City to Provo.
Got our NEW surge protector yet again and stopped at a place called Thanksgiving Point. It is large mall area that is dedicated to families. Basically it is a big learning center. One of the buildings houses the Museum of Ancient Life. This is a big interactive museum teaching kids (and adults) about prehistoric Utah. They have over 60 actual dinosaur fossils found in Utah and Wyoming. This is well worth anyone's time to experience.
I met a wonderful lady from Pensacola, Florida while doing laundry. She had never been out of the state of Florida and they were on their first trip in a motor home and traveling. Very interesting to hear all their adventures and experiences. Lots of first time things I had forgotten about. I will say this again, some of the best part of RVing is the people you meet.
