I wish I had known we were in the same general area. I would have changed plans just to see your ride.My wife and I are in the same boat. We have planned this vacation for almost a year and now are at the doorsteps of all these parks only to be turned away.
I was told this evening by two folks here in Kanab, UT that Zion NP is actually a highway and as such cannot be closed. One was at the park yesterday and said as long as your not staying long and just jump out to take pictures here and there- no one bothers you.
We just came up from Flagstaff, AZ and the mood there is bad. Most of the hotels are filled to the rim with tourists from all over the world who cant understand why they can see the Grand Canyon or other parks.
Were heading to Zion tomorrow
We visited the Valley of Fire in NM prior to leaving for AZ and then the parks closed. Otherwise we've hit White Sands and that's it. Just enjoying the drive from Houston and wheeling when I can.
Im in Kanab for 4 days and then Breckenridge, CO for 5. Otherwise I'll be at Summit 2014 :bigthumb:I wish I had known we were in the same general area. I would have changed plans just to see your ride.
Hey, in your park, are guests of residents being allowed? Here in Yosemite, we can have guests (family and friends) enter the park and visit. It's amazing how many "old friends" I've heard from who now want to visit during a really quiet time in the park.The National Park I live in is closed . All employees are on leave except for the Armed Rangers . Got to protect the Park from someone stealing it . :lol:
Should've pulled the old friend routine this weekendHey, in your park, are guests of residents being allowed? Here in Yosemite, we can have guests (family and friends) enter the park and visit.

Cheers, and hopin' we open soon!
Ha! Love to host, but I need to take some time off work, officially. Family is flying in from Memphis and I will be at the Clovis home starting Wednesday or Thursday. Hopefully another time!Should've pulled the old friend routine this weekend
We wanted to head up that way, but went to Bay Area instead, due to the closure. Even had the Fj too, since we took the dogs. I'll keep you in mind this weekend Really sucks being 45 minutes away not able to enter Yosemite or Sequoia!
So I didn't actually know you weren't allowed to have dogs at Arches, and no one told me otherwise, so my dog got to see everything . Wasn't until after we got back that a friend of mine who had been there before told me dogs weren't allowed. Whoops.
Hahahaha, happy as a clam. Exclusive territory for her :rocker:Here she is hanging out infront of Delicate Arch.
