(nr Green River UT)
Spent a few days camped next to the Green River in Utah. I rarely stay at a pay campground; but, this one was special enough to spend a few days. It was about ten miles from town past ranches and farms.
Lower Gray Canyon-Swasey Beach CG, a small BLM campground, was at the end of a paved road, and right on the edge of the river, which was full from recent rains and was roaring past with lots of rapids. What a delightful sight to see!
Located next to the colorful Book Cliffs, and surrounded by mesas, buttes, and lots of green shrubbery and trees it was a visually exciting scene. There was also a small beach, and plenty of rocks along the riverbank.
It was a chance to work on the many photos recently taken, and to write-up some blog posts. I was also planning my route and what attractions to see along the way. A hike up the gravel road, beyond the campground, found a couple of free boondock camps next to the river. Without the recent rain, they would have been a good choice.
Camp: Lower Gray Canyon-Swasey Beach CG – BLM
Scene: River, mesas, buttes, beach, rocks, trees
You’re killing me, here! 🙂
Beautiful photos and awesome areas! I’ve got the itch and yes, it IS being scratched! We just arrived back in Ohio from Moriarty, NM where we purchased a 2004 Lazy Daze. Now getting ready to list this stick house come mid-July and then, hopefully, head back out to NM sometime in the month of May, next year as full-timers.
Thanks for keeping our vision alive!
Congratulations on getting your Lazy Daze; you’ll learn to love it. Hope your house sells quickly and you get on the road to enjoying this lifestyle.
This is a gorgeous place. “The Colorful Book Cliffs” are absolutely beautiful. I’ve Never seen anything like them. Can’t blame you for staying longer than usual, definitely a place to stay awhile.
It was indeed a beautiful location. Thanks for commenting Dorothy.
