. . . After soaking in Bryce we head out, going north (on 89 again!!) toward Circleville where we stop at Butch Cassidy’s childhood home which is under restoration.
The boys are awake from their nap and getting fidgety, and I am getting hungry so I keep an eye out for a place to stop. Official rest areas are hard to come by on secondary roads, but we were smiled upon today and come across this lovely spot.
We park, the boys are taken out to hike a leg, then we get back in the van and I begin making lunch. Business taken care of the boys will have to wait on their walkabout. I no sooner get things out to make a sandwich than I notice the boys staring out the driver’s side window, Charlie softly whining. They’ve spotted something.
“Okay, boys, we’ll check it out, but give me a few minutes to get something in my stomach, will ya?” I wolf down my sandwich, leash them up and we head across the large paved road to see what we can see.
It’s these two!!! They are adorable and friendly, and the boys are even okay with me giving them a pet and planting a kiss or two on those sweet noses.
Rested and raring to continue on, we motor away from the the Sevier River which we have been following all the way through the canyon. Coming out the other side I find the Piute State Campground located on the Piute Reservoir and decide here is where we will stay tonight.
Thanks for stopping by! Hugs, Shawna
PS We have been without cell or internet for days. Sometimes it’s spotty, sometimes it’s non-existent. Thank goodness I can write and schedule posts in advance for publishing or we would be more than far behind!

Other: For a state park this didn’t cut it. I didn’t find water, although there may have been water, tables, and BBQs at the picnic area which I didn’t drive to. The bathrooms were locked where we camped!
