17th Trip- Days 77-83, May 25-31, 2021, Utah Lake State Park, Provo, UT
What do you do when you want to camp but Kevin’s work requires him to work at home? You camp close by. We came to Utah Lake State Park, which took less than an hour, and then he would drive home to the “office” every day. HAHA Kind of in reverse order of “going to work” but it worked out for us.
This campsite is really nice. We are on the very end and have lovely views all around of the lake and mountains.
Looking out towards the lake and mountains. It is a nice evening for our walk.
A nice morning with a good book, yummy breakfast of homemade muffins and a Diet Dr Pepper. What more is needed? 🙂
What more is needed? Sewing, of course. Here I am piecing together a quilt top. HOWE (our travel trailer we named Home On WhEels) is an easy place to sew and I have plenty of room for this. If you read past posts, you know I am using a sewing table from SewEZi. I recommend it 100%. It is very sturdy and holds my machine perfectly. It also folds up and fits in the storage under our bed.
When Kevin got home, I mean, to our campground, HA, we enjoyed a walk around the marina. It is fun to watch the boats go in and out.
Across the lake, you see Mt. Timpanogos. It is 11,753 ft above sea level. It is common to still have snow this time of year.
Who is ready for some veggies on the BlackStone Griddle? Me!
Kevin brought our hummingbird feeder from home. We were entertained by watching them. In the picture, below the feeder, you see a small airplane. We are close to a small airport. I can’t hear them (I am deaf) but Kevin says he can hear them in a distance. I guess we are easily entertained…we like to watch boats, planes, birds, people, etc. etc. 🙂 Oh yes, and add campers because they are fun to watch, too. Especially when they are backing into a campsite. HAHA
See the paddle boarder?
Chicken Nachos, anyone? These are suppose to be foil packets cooked in the fire but this area is under fire restrictions. No problem for us! We cooked them on our small gas grill and it worked perfectly. I will add the recipe at the end of this blog.
Sewing pieces for a quilt…outside! it was so nice being able to see the lake, enjoy nature and doing a craft I love.
Pancakes for breakfast cooked on our Black Stone Griddle. Kevin does a lot of our meal on that device and it works so well.
Another awesome camping trip. Here is the recipe:
1 bag tortilla chips
2 cups shredded cooked chicken (When I cooked it, I added taco seasoning)
1/2 cup red enchilada sauce
15 oz can diced tomatoes with green chilies OR cilantro, drained
1 cup black beans, drained
1 1/2 cup shredded Mexican-flavored cheese
Got four large sheets of tin foil and place the chips in the middle. Then add all the other ingredients. Fold the long sides of the foil, leaving a little space on top. Then roll up the sides of the foil. Place on grill until all is heated through and the cheese is melted, around 10-15 minutes. Enjoy!
