Amazing Road Trip to Utah

Hiking Delicate Arch in Arches National Park, Utah - Winter 2017

Landscape Arch and Delicate Arch in Arches National Park, Utah

The goal – hike all five National Parks in Utah

We had an amazing 17 day road trip to Utah and beyond (thanks to a lot of free hotel nights we earned during building season). The trip really exceeded all our expectations. We hiked all five National Parks in Utah (some using our miraculous hiking spikes), plus some amazing ones in Arizona and New Mexico. We hit really good weather considering it was winter.

When we got back to Virginia, the pipes in our RV were frozen and it took 3 days to thaw out. Crazy cold temps! And while we were gone, a pack of mice (do mice come in packs?) invaded our RV. They ate everything from a whole pack of Taco Seasoning (Milton said maybe they were Mexican mice) to plastic caps on food containers, the rubber on spatulas, fringes on a scarf my mother and I bought in Merida, Mexico and much more. They left “evidence” everywhere! So I spent 3 days disinfecting and scouring everything in the RV. We trapped a few and I guess the rest of the “pack” got the hint because we haven’t seen any since.
