    any suggestions on where to start for my 1st trip to Utah---would like to go in spring when weather may still be cool --but we're open---just don't want to go during spring break time ---any advice appreciated

    From TX go North up the East side of the state and then west to SLC. Then south down the western part of the state. This way the high country around Cedar Brakes NP (SW UT) will be free of snow.

        If you have the time, check out the Monument Valley area in extreme SE Utah. Gouldings is a good campground to stay in that vicinity. The Moki Dugway and Valley of the Gods Road are all nearby.

            Jim our old polaroids are very red today.
            These photos are very impressive.
            They are more like what the human eye actually see's.
            More open looking, with no trimmed edges.

              We stayed at Bauer's in Glendale, UT, last May and made day trips to Zion and Bryce.

                Been to Bauers--nice place to stay for the parks is correct. But it is small, not too many sites, and quite a ways to any civilization (WalMart, etc). But I'd do it again just for the location.

                  forgot to say that we stayed at Arch View Resort which bills itself as "Utah's Best RV Resort" .... unless they are about the only "RV Resort" in Utah, I suspect they are a bit overstating it .... who knows, maybe they didn't consider any campgrounds .... can tell you this, no problem finding a site with a clear view of the sky in all directions .... if back in the Moab area, we would stay there again
