Utah, Colorado 2014 Summary

In the spring of 2014 we explored all the national parks of southern Utah and then in early summer when it got too hot we moved on to exploring some of the cooler mountain regions of Colorado.

I think this was our best trip so far.

5 months or 151 days since we left home (Mar 21 – Aug 18).

Together with other years that makes 691 days we have stayed in the RV.

27000 pictures saved (who know how many taken, at least double). It seems I posted over 6000 to the blog.

My DSLR camera is actually worn out. The shutter release button no longer works reliably. I figure it has taken somewhere in the neighbourhood of 300,000 pictures.


  1. 360 km hiking
  2. 9000 km on the RV
  3. 14000 km on the CRV just in day trips.


I didn’t keep track of the money. We stayed in full hookup campgrounds the entire time which are more expensive. I always wanted to be able to run the air conditioners. We usually paid in the range of $30-$40 a night. The only expensive extras we paid for were the Jeep rental, the Antelope Canyon tour and the Lake Powell Boat cruise.
