We’ve been doing what I think of as “positioning”… positioning ourselves for something more fun that what we’re currently doing. Our target is Capitol Reef National Park, now just one day away – but we wanted to visit Costco and a well supplied grocery store before we arrived.
The day we left Ririe (and received the gift of potatoes), we spent the night in Fort Hall, an Indian reservation north of Pocatello, at the Fort Hall Casino RV Campground (click here to read our review and see photos). Nothing special, but it had hookups to keep us cool on a hot day and easy access to the Costco in nearby Pocatello.
We were hungry when we hit Costco, and we gave their Saturday sample tables a workout. They snared us with a marinated tri-tip, which ended up in our basket and, later, on our grill. Breakfast, before we took off on Sunday, was tri-tip and Idaho potato hash!
Around 250 miles later, we were in a site at Canyon View RV Park (click here to read our review and see photos), a small, inexpensive, municipal campground in Spanish Fork, Utah, a few miles off the interstate. While Odel played 18 holes on the golf course that surrounds the campground, I visited the grocery store and restocked our supplies… and made German Potato Salad in the crockpot. Another eight potatoes eaten!
So… the chores are done, let the fun begin! Capitol Reef, here we come.
