    This was a few months ago. My dog and I originally planned a trip to Sedona, but I decided to head to S. Utah instead since it was cheaper and so many things to do. It was a blast. We saw lots of snow and lots of 60* temps. March is a great time for S Utah. This is our next trip for late August. I might not want to go this long so Plan B will be up to Denver from Dallas to see my brother and then explore places off I70 until until ends in central Utah. So far Utah is my favorite state and I will never be able to explore everything.

    I’m sure. I’m building up our gx460 at the moment to set it up for a long trip with the family one day.

    Here’s how it sits right now.

    Awesome, headed there in Aug on our way back to Bryce for a few days of camping. Utah is by far our favorite State as well.

    I know it's not out in the wild scenic, but sometimes I think city shots look nice too.

    If you were on the Keeweenaw / in Houghton, did you go out to the abandoned rocket range (road in the link on your first post)?? Fun little 4wd excursion to about the prettiest campsite I've ever been to in my life...

    MeefZah--We did not go to the rocket range, but instead to the High Rock Bay campsite area. The "road" splits. Yes it is beautiful! Probably you know this place too--it's sort of informal, fire rings but no water or toilets. We didn't camp because the port-a-potty we ordered for delivery at Marquette Walmart did not show up! That road is amazing, hard to describe. Took us over an hour to go 7 1/2 miles. It had recently rained. About a mile and a half from the end we met a guy in a Silverado on his return, asked him how much farther? He said 10 minutes. (He was way off). "There will be BIG PUDDLES, but they all have hard bottoms." LOL he was right on that! They were huge, long, deep, we counted 22 of them. This is the first one, rather modest, after that we did not stop to take pictures. Our 2013 Limited took it all in stride.

    I have not been up to the Copper Harbor area since I was 16 or 18. I remember lake near town and catching brook trout so easily. It was like blue gill fishing with a bobber and night crawler. Definitely God's country
