Trip West

In May, we took a trip out west for a little sight-seeing.  We made reservations for the trip out, but stayed at some non-reservable park campgrounds once we got out there. Our cheapest site was Desert View Campground at Grand Canyon National Park – $6/night (with our America the Beautiful pass).

Heading into Arches National Park – get there early to avoid the crowds. That holds true for just about everything.
