Otherwise known as, The Clippah Went West...and Stayed There!
We took a road trip to the Southwest in October 2011. Life just wasn't the same after returning to Chicago, so we moved to Las Vegas in June 2014, acquired one more dog, and a couple more trailers!
This blog is dedicated to my Grandpa Norman, who made it his mission in (later) life to purchase and trade-in as many motor homes as he possibly could. We love you!

10/12 First Impressions of Utah
The drive from Cortez, Colorado, to Moab, Utah, is only a little over three hours on two-lane state highways. Yet, the landscape changes so much that it feels as though we had taken a trip to Mars. Now I know that certain family members of mine are not very interested in Utah (cough…cough…), but I have to say that this is some of the most incredible scenery I have ever driven through. I kept muttering things, like, “This reminds me of Petra!!” or just, “Whoa,” over and over. With Canyonlands National Park to our left, and Arches National Park looming in the north, the orange landscape seemed pretty impressive to two kids from Chi-town.
