Day 20 (6/20/14): Heber City, UT | Midway, UT

This was a laid-back day. We gave the truck a much-needed wash to clean off the caked-on insects. Then we grilled up some hotdogs for lunch. I took a lovely little nap in the afternoon and later worked on the blog to try to get caught up.

For dinner, we drove through Heber City into Midway, a small Swiss town nestled against the mountains. We ate at Café Galleria, a quaint little restaurant on Main Street located in what reminded me of an old farmhouse. The weather was perfect as we sat outside and enjoyed live music while we ate our meals. From there, we drove back into Heber City and stopped at Granny’s Drive-In for a milkshake dessert.  It was a nice end to a nice, relaxing day.  🙂

 

Day 21 (6/21/14): Park City, UT

Back in January 2007, after we had been dating for a few months, Justin took me to Park City for a ski trip. It was my first time in Park City as well as my first time skiing. Since the last time I was in Park City was over 7 years ago and in the winter nonetheless, my memories of the area were fuzzy and covered in snow. It seemed completely different in the snow-less summer though. It was green and sunny instead of white and dismal.  The weather and surrounding mountains were beautiful!

They had the street closed to traffic as they were setting up for an event that evening, which made it more enjoyable to walk up and down Main Street, crossing from one side to the next as we saw interesting shops and potential restaurants for lunch. Park City’s Main Street has been my favorite Main Street so far with its eclectic storefronts and mountain backdrop.

We’re the Bennetts, Justin & Briana, and it’s time for a change! We've left our jobs and everything else behind to start fresh somewhere else. They say it's all about "location, location, location," and what better way to figure out the best location for us than to explore the entire country searching for it? We’ll be driving across the continent with a truck and travel trailer on the cross-country road trip of a lifetime! Tag along with us and our two dogs, Meaty and Saucy, as we explore North America searching for our next destination!

Another National Park to check off the list! Saguaro National Park was #24 for us out of 60 total U.S. National Parks. The only place in the world where the Saguaro cactus grows is the Sonoran Desert, which is located primarily in Mexico but is also in a small part of the southwestern U.S. consisting of the southern third of Arizona and the southeastern tip of California. So while we were traveling through Arizona, we had to take advantage and make a stop in Tucson to visit this cactus in its very own National Park!⠀ {...}⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ #FBF #flashbackfriday #facts #funfact #funfactfriday #factoftheday #saguaro #saguaronationalpark #nationalpark #nationalparkgeek #desertvibes #arizona #tucson #tucsonarizona #visitarizona #explorearizona #southwest #roadtrip #thegreatoutdoors #optoutside #outside_project #getoutside #themoderndayexplorer #roamtheplanet #travellife #photooftheday #desertvibes #outdooradventures #nextdestinationunknown
As we made our way southeast, we stopped in Tucson to cross another National Park off our list: Saguaro National Park! Since we were only there a few days, we splurged on this upgraded site at the Tucson/Lazydays KOA Resort, which we really enjoyed and would have to say has been one of our favorite KOAs (they can be hit or miss). We were actually tempted to stay here longer to enjoy the RV park, but in the end, we were on a time-crunch with plans to meet up with family during the upcoming winter holidays at the time (I'm soooo behind on my posts... oops!). Plus, the other National Parks were calling to us (which I'll get around to posting eventually... haha!).⠀ {...}⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ #latergram #TBT #throwbackthursday #tucson #koa #gorving #rv #rvers #rving #roadlife #lifeontheroad #homeiswhereyouparkit #glamping #rvtrip #rvlife #rvlifestyle #rvliving #wanderlust #stayandwander #getoutandexplore #roadtrip #ontheroad #ontheroadagain #travellife #travelers #neverstopexploring #goexplore #adventuretime #adventurelife #nextdestinationunknown
The sky gave us quite a show on the drive back to the Phoenix area from our day trip to Sedona. It was the cherry on top of an overall fabulous day! Even though we don't miss living in the desert, there's just something about desert sunsets! #amiright ? {...} • • • #desertsky #desertsunset #sunset #skyporn #cloudporn #nofilter #arizona #cactus #cactusclub #roadlife #roadtrip #daytrip #visitarizona #explorearizona #southwest #westbysouthwest #findyouraway #optoutside #gorving #themoderndayexplorer #roamtheplanet #outside_project #getoutside #photooftheday #instagood #photographyart #iphonephotography #iphoneography #nextdestinationunknown
