Life in our RV Trek Eastward Trek Toward Home Home at Last



Our last leg before California is under way.   We crossed into Utah and headed for Ogden outside of Salt Lake City.   We stayed at Cherry Hill.    Cherry Hill was a cherry farm that the family turned into a RV park.  It is still family run and has great family activities.

Today we left there and headed into Nevada.   We had a long drive so we didn't go into Salt Lake City but just visited Salt Lake.   An few hours after we left the tornado touched down in the center of Salt Lake City.   Nature's power strikes again, we're glad we left early.

The park also had a great miniature golf course, snack bars and a pie pantry.
