We departed Kingman and headed on to Nevada.

Kingman, AZ

Departing Kingman along route 66

We headed on towards Las Vegas and as usual, took the bypass through Lake Mead National Recreation Area. It is such a beautiful drive and peaceful and much nicer than driving through Vegas.

 

We continued on through Mesquite and eventually back into Arizona going through the beautiful Virgin River Canyon area before entering southern Utah.

 

It isn’t long before we drove on through St. George and on to Hurricane to Sand Hollow State Park. We love this area.

 

Welcome to Sand Hollow State Park with a reservoir for boating and swimming and great vistas.

 

Campground: Sand Hollow State Park – Westside Campground
Location: Hurricane, Utah
Site: WS18 (Pull thru)
Cost: $40.67
Services:  FHU
Comments:  A lovely campground with great views of the surrounding mountains. It is in close proximity to both St. George and Hurricane for amenities and hiking.
COVID Awareness: 10 out of 10. The state park has a manned entry kiosk booth. There was a employee outside directing those for day use to another entry and campers in through the kiosk entry. An employee quickly checked us in and off we went. All employees wore masks. We did not use any public areas.

 

And, of course, there are so many great hikes in the area but the days are hot, really, really hot and not conducive to long hikes but we still drove around some and enjoyed the views! Always beautiful!
