Summer Lake Hot Springs, Day One

On our way to Summer Lake Hot Springs we stopped in the little town of Crescent and had a quick lunch at The Mohawk Restaurant.

Yup, they’ve got it all: lottery, taxidermy and the largest collection of Jim Beam collector bottles you’ve ever seen. Pretty fun place, definitely worth a stop should you find yourself in the neighborhood.

The Cowboy Dinner Tree!

You have two choices at The Cowboy Dinner Tree: A 30oz steak, or a whole chicken.

Right about dusk we pulled into Summer Lake Hot Springs.

Las Vegas to Zion

Well, an interesting start to the trip. While I basked and almost passed out from 104 degree heat in Las Vegas Gail was trying to get out of Milwaukee. Four and a half hours later she arrived. And off to Zion we go….to get away and social distance in a pandemic. Leaving the wildfire smoke in Washington, it followed me. A bit hazy and hot. To our dismay Springdale outside of Zion was crawling with tourists. Utah is basically not concerned about masks. We found a to go salad and hunkered down. Next day we found no parking in Zion and needed a shuttle to see the canyon so drove through and headed to Red Canyon and scenic Hwy 12 to Cedar Breaks National Park. Elevation 10,000 ft, and temp drop from 90 to 60.
