Our 1989 Trip to Utah

In June 1989 we rented a car for our family road trip to Utah. We stayed with friends, visited Temple Square, This is the Place and other sights, BYU, the Kanosh grandmother, and Michael was sick most of the time and missed the 4th of July BBQ at the park once home, our tradition. The next road trip to Provo was to celebrate our daughter's college graduation.

Tahoe Hacienda Inn

We stayed a couple times at this inn set in from the busy main drag and enjoyed it alot, once with our sons and once the five of us. A pool, jacuzzi, picnic table, kitchenette, fun. An earlier summer Paul and I took the bus and spent several days at Tahoe before I had to go back to work. Sweet memories!

Camping at San Mateo County Memorial Park Over Memorial Day Weekend

Just Michael and me.

Mary Smith Campground on Lewiston Lake

We had a blast driving into all the campgrounds and inns along Trinity Lake to see how they compared. It was such a fun time. And of course we visited the Old Schoolhouse where I attended school for a short time in Lewiston. We used wheelbarrows to get our camp gear to our chosen site.

Mt. Lassen

Michael and I climbed Lassen Peak during our camp trip there.

Crater Lake

Michael and I visited Crater Lake enjoying hiking along the perimeter. We returned another year with our daughter and sons for camping and hiking to the water for the boat ride with our sons. What a place of beauty.

The Good List, Compiled by Steven K. Jones

Choosing and Using Movies From the Lord's Side of the Line.

Like the author says, the library is an excellent source. Goodwill also has a large selection for a buck.
