Grand Junction was the stop for the night. Due to a lack of campgrounds, we stopped in a KOA--not our usual choice, but the kids were happy--it had a pool! We were all able to do laundry and the RV store was less than a mile from the campground. Unfortunately, it was not open on Sunday, but it did open early Monday. Bob was able to get the latch fixed before check-out and we were on our way to Dinosaur National Monument.
After arriving at Dinosaur National Monument, we got set up in a great site with excellent solar.
The following day, Bob and I got up early...to beat the heat...and hiked Sounds of Silence Trail. We hiked it years ago and remembered it as a good hike, not too strenuous, not too easy.
That afternoon, to escape the heat, we drove to Vernal, Utah, to visit Wal-Mart and to check out the sights. Christopher ran back to the car before we could get a picture with both kids.
