Never realized I hadnt posted any of the info about the trips I've taken with the trailer in here!
This one was in december, 2012.
Got my girl and her sister all excited to go camping with some friends, we picked Valley of Fire state park, I've never actually camped there and it's right in our back yard.
So, load'er up!!!
We hit the road, it had been overcast and we were worried about the weather but all for naught.
Headed in, it was looking gloomy, but the clouds starte dto break, and as soon as we went down into the valley and rounded the corner it was beautifully sunny.
Headed out towards Arch rock campground. The colors out here are amazing, these pics dont do it justice, when the sun would come out everything was just glowing red.
Picked a nice, secluded (we thought) camping spot, and backed her in!
We set up camp....
And as soon as we were done doing that, our "neighbors" came back. Turns out the next spot over was a group of kids (18?) that were loud as hell. Hootin' and hollerin' and back there in the canyon we could hear every word, forget about the "OOOH MY GOD's" and the "NOOOO WAY DUDE!!!!!'s" and the "BRO!!!!!!'s".
We dropped the camper, hooked up, and rolled back around the front of the campground.
All my friends, except for one, bailed for one reason or another. We set up the camper and went driving around a bit to watch the sun set.
OO look, 4000 year old petroglyphs!!
Ooooo, look, a petrified tree from 125,000,000 years ago!!!! but SSSSHHHHH dont disturb it, it's sleeping!
Here I am parked next to one of the "Beehives"
Kept driving, dun was going down
Got up to the top at Rainbow vista, and took a gander at the colors.
Headed back dowwwwwwn
And that was about it, the sun went down, we had a nice fire and some dinner, then crashed in the campah. It was nice, maybe high 30's at night. Stayed nice and warm in the bed under the blankets without the heat on.
My favorite part about the camper, is being "inside" and having room to move around. i woke up turned on the heater, and put on a pot of coffee.
Cooked up a delicious breakfast, all inside! (sorry, i'm still not used to the camper aspect)
And thats about it! We hooked up and headed home that day. Just a fun overnighter to get out of town.
Absolutely beautiful country out there, way better than Red Rock NCA. If you're ever in the area, I highly suggest visiting Valley of Fire.
