RV Park Review Jones High Country RV Park

The day we left Rio Bend RV and Golf Resort, wasn't very windy like it had been.  It was a 75 degree day, sunny and beautiful.  Hated to leave.  We spent the night at Jones High Country RV Park in Nephi, UT at an elevation of over 5100 feet.

Jones High Country RV park is near the small town of Nephi, Ut.  It's fairly small but very quiet and quaint.  There are about 30 sites and has pull throughs if you need.  And big rigs are no problem in the longer sites.  There is power hookups with 50 amps, water and sewer.  WIFI is available but we didn't need it so I"m not sure it's free.  There is no cable TV so if you have a satellite dish, you're in business.  And pets are welcomed.  There are shade trees so you need to check which site is ok to get satellite TV.  The shade would be awesome in the summer time but whe we were there it was a bit windy and cold at 56 degrees the end of March.  

We had a quiet evening watching TV and resting for the continuation of our trip home.

Rainy Day at Lake Sawyer RV Park

AND Maple Valley, WA

Well, we can't complain since we had only one day of rain all winter in El Centro.  It's a good excuse to stay home and drink hot tea and snuggle up with a good book.  Normally.

But I"m not normal.  I've been making paper beads for the last few days and listed a few on Ebay.  See HERE and scroll down a bit.

 or HERE

They are addicting!  I can't stop making them.  I'm making some pendants, too.

Lake Sawyer RV Park, Maple Valley, WA

Home again at Lake Sawyer RV Park in Maple Valley, WA.  Home again home again jiggity jog!  Something like that, LOL

We arrived Monday after a wonderful weekend with Jen and the boys.  We talked and laughed here at the motor home at the Tri Mountain RV Park in Ridgefield, WA, so close to where she lives in Vancouver, WA and then we went over to her place on Saturday.  We spent the day with Jen, Tyler, Ashleigh and Conner.  So much fun.  We went to the Vancouver Saturday Market, had yummy corn dogs and kettle korn.

Then we went to her place where Tyler smoked us the most amazing pork roast for sandwiches!  I had no idea he was such a good cook.  He loves to cook and we loved it, too.  How yummy we had it all day.  That evening we had a few margaritas and more laughing and fun.

Sunday we met Jen and a friend Danny, his Mom, Peggy and his step-dad Ray, at Jollies for the live country band.  Oh, my what another great time we had.  The time was way too short.  We danced and had a wonderful evening and weekend.  Thank you so much Jen!

Wish I had thought to take some pics.

As I said, we arrived here on Monday and got all set up, relaxed and boy, it felt weird.  We are home, but it doesn't feel like it.  We really miss Rio Bend RV Park, I think.  We were there for so long.

Today, Tuesday, I made another loaf of gluten free bread, or am trying anyway; it's a tricky thing to do.  He got the car washed, I got some clothes washed.  We'll just relax and watch some TV.  I'll maybe get to a Zumba class tomorrow night.  I should feel like it by then.

More later and maybe I"ll get some pictures taken.  Hey, guess what?  It's   r a i n i n g  !!   Surprise surprise!!
