Camping In The Wilds At Pine Lake, Utah

I was told that finding somewhere to camp at busy Bryce Canyon may be a problem, so we set off down a very long gravel road into the wild, mountain lion habitat…

And were rewarded by beautiful little Pine Lake campground…

No mountain lions seen but a commotion nearby in the night seemed to indicate the presence of one nearby…things like that focus the mind somewhat, a beautiful place though

Totally Amazing Beautiful Bryce Canyon, Utah

Bryce Canyon is yet another American natural wonder that boggles the mind.  It is absolutely stunning and we’re so lucky to have visited.  It was one of our favourite places and I really hope I get to go back someday.

Utah, crazy road, beautiful country

Us Highway 316 turned into the “Moki Dugway”, a crazy gravel road switch backing straight up a mountain face which, when climbed, offered amazing views in total, wonderful silence….

And For Our Next Stop – Navajo National Monument

Navajo National Monument in Northern Arizona is a place I visited years ago and inspired my song “Navajo Wind” on my album “Heading West”.  It is a remote and incredibly quiet place, where the remains of the Anasazi (“Ancient Ones”) cliff dwellings are preserved by the Navajo Nation tribe.  Nobody knows for sure why these people left or where they went, but when you gaze out across the valley at their homes in the rock and the surrounding desolate landscape you can only imagine what their lives must have been like.
