Finally, Zac spends his day moving, trees you'll, definitely want to find out why on ayl starting, now. You. Can't define it in just one thing when you're talking about the RV lifestyle, because in, all reality the, RV lifestyle, has in it convenience. Because all your stuffs with you so you can be well planned or you can be spontaneous your. Vacation, is the trip, and that's why I like motorhomes, personally, because the. Journey is the big part to me I love being, able to go off on a journey. But. First the most important, thing that you need to know about RV, travel is the, destination, and, that's, what we're looking at today the top 10 RV, camping, destinations. Here in this beautiful state of Utah so let's get going. One. Of the top 10 RV camping, spots is definitely, Zion, it's. Just such a beautiful place. Especially. If it rains and you start seeing waterfalls, coming everywhere they. Have full hookup so you can pull in and and, hook, up water and power, and, have. A nice little stay it's. Really cool you can actually volunteer. There and have. Your own RV, and stand. There and enjoy Zion I love. Camping, at miners. Bill reservoir, outside, of Fever everything. That has to do with the lake I'm right there lemon, I mean, I'd love to grill, out sit. By the campfire, just. Brings us close together and give this time to share and have. Bring. A lot of memories together. It's. Called Lily Lake it's a really beautiful lakes, just filled with lilies people, go canoeing on it all the time it's just super pretty so, when I go I go up to the UN ha's so I stay a little bit in the cooler areas, I like snow a lot more in Utah you, can get an RV up there you can get trailers up there it is dirt road Lily do you have yurts up there you're more than welcome transferred, we're going to gear and camp up there it's, really awesome, I do, a lot of Moab, two, times a year we get down into Moab and get down there on the trails and dry camp that's. One I probably my most, favorite place to go you've, got the rock climbing you've got all kinds of back trails going down into Hey Joe and, watching.
The River rafters, and have. The whole area just kind of to yourself it's, really a, kind. Of a serene feeling out there especially the, night sky is all the stars it's. It's. A nice feeling out there our. Favorite place is plain. Deal Stefan Andersson scope we, go up to, Anderson's Cove and go boudin and we just started doing it since we've moved back, to, Utah and we've. Lived in California, for the last. 15. Years we've. Been back in Utah for three, making. Memories with our family just, not. Being tied down d connecting, from the world and just. Get. Out we have four kids and so just make memories with our with, our kids. And appropriately. Enough we, are here, at Anderson's, flats and, this actually, really. Reasonably here is one of my favorite spots I just bring my kids up here we, come up we bring the RV we go over to Huntsville, and spend, the 4th of July at their 4th of July celebration, we would bring our boat because, this campground, has its own private launch ramp right in the campground, we're gonna continue with our top RV, camping, destinations. Later on in the show but right now we're gonna go to our travel adventure, hey. Guys zach seprieono here with your travel adventure, today we, are with the folks in rubies in we're gonna be 80 being up pals point we're, going to answer ourselves a question if. The tree falls in the forest and no one's around to hear it am, i strong enough to break in an afternoon. And travel, a little bit north from rubies and we hit a dirt, road that heads to Pine Lake which is a popular. Fishing hole for, the locals here and then. We head up the mountain which is can. Be a little treacherous, at, some points you got to be careful and it's. A pretty. Steep pretty. Pretty, high incline, where. We're standing is, ten. Thousand one hundred and fifteen feet, above sea level and. Then we had to go some through some pretty thick trees that's. A that's a pretty old old forest, I don't know if you notice there's some, Bristlecone. Pine up here which they say are over 2000 years old it's. Just a great place to go is very peaceful, and fun, to get here the trail up to pal point is just outside of bryce canyon city off of highway 12 which is known for its fascinating, landscapes, and towering, rock formations, i've probably bought a couple dozen people. Up here especially the, new employees, from other countries, and whatnot, i've, brought quite a few of them up, because. They've all asked, me Oh we'd love to go up there and I said, well pack. Your stuff we're going up there be ready for an adventure speaking. Of being ready for an adventure, let's talk preparation, no no I'm not gonna harp on Utah weather again middle, of summer snow, a little bit beautiful. Thing cuz I was ready for it this time but, here's, what I wasn't quite ready for it looks like somebody, decided, to take a little nap in the middle of the trail it's, a good thing we were on an ATV tour with rubies in because, they brought something along that I don't typically, pack for outing such as these. Pretty. Strong having moved a tree. Where. It was. I've. Always, wanted to Gail this. I'm, gonna make a wreath out of this. Just. Book pictures of chat in it it's gonna be nice. Seven. Did, you know that thousands, of trees fall down in forests every year and no one's around to hear them, call. The number at the bottom of your screen to donate now if, you try to come up here by yourself I definitely, recommend a chainsaw, definitely, brings food water, and wait. Till summer months, if you try to come up here too early the. Snow does not melt very fast up here you, can easily get. Stuck up here as Mike. Found out last year. About. To begin the hiking portion, our adventure. How's. My hair John Wesley Powell came up here in the late 1800s. To, adapt. To draw maps of most of southern Utah he was able to draw a pretty accurate maps you, know so pioneers, back in the late 18-hundreds, could find their way around here and as you can see he. You, can see everything about from, up here you, can actually, see. The Monte lacell mountains. Which. Are in Colorado, down. Behind me down here is Lake Powell. Navajo. Mountain over, here which, is in Arizona, and to, the west. Of us you're probably seeing some of the mountains over in Nevada, we're on the top of the world here you, know I'd have a house here if I could.
More. Night releaser, after, the break. Dominate. Every, trail, conquer. Any task, you, need a machine that does it all, introducing. Polaris, general the general is the most powerful req utility, side-by-side, ever made the, industry's, deepest, cargo box lets you haul and up up to 600, pounds and the revolutionary, cockpit, totally refines comfort, and protection, Polaris.

Fenceposts. 900. Acres, 48. Bales, all before lunch which. We caught last Saturday we. Earn our scars, we. Wear our work ethic, we. Work until the works done. The. Km ready to ride sales event is on now visit, your local dealer for details. Welcome. Back everybody to at your leisure I'm Rick Peterson and, today I get to go for a ride in the brand-new Wolverine, x4, from Yamaha, love, this machine, it's a four-seater, in a footprint just barely bigger than a two-seater, that means it's super agile and, a lot of fun I'm gonna take it for a ride. We're. Really excited, about the new Wolverine. X4, because, it's a brand new engine it's a brand new model in, Utah, we like force eaters. The Wolverine is becoming, one of my favorite machines if I want to go out with my family or just with three of my buddies it's a great four seater with plenty, of power with the brand-new engine but the comfort on that thing and especially the. Noise level, almost no noise it is so quiet never, experienced, that before on, a UTV. Wow. This machine's a lot of fun to ride in it's also very, comfortable, and when it comes to keeping your family safe and secure, they've thought of everything the, high back bolstered, seats are, super, comfortable, secure, doors and side panels to hold you in you know and one of the coolest features in the back of this machine is the ability to fold up and move forward, the rear seats to create a tremendous, amount of cargo space one. Of the really unique features, of the Wolverine x4, is, this automated, load leveling, suspension. Which, means when somebody gets in the back of your machine and fills up those back two seats it's going to adjust for that extra weight and of course when they get out it goes right back to the Comfort ride for two one. Thing you're really going to notice on this machine is how quiet, it is it's, like one of those new electric, cars you can't hear it coming, part, of that is from this amazing muffler, system but, throughout the machine they've done things to reduce the noise this is so quiet and so comfortable.
And. When you get inside you, really notice the value of all the effort they put in to make this a quiet, machine you can actually have a conversation while. You're going down the road all your controls are within reach from the steering wheel you've, got your little bit of differential, four-wheel drive or your full locking, differential, your lights your tilt steering wheel. Multifunction. LED, display, and actually a hand parking, brake which as you need love, the interior of this machine and finally. There's a couple of other really great features, underneath, the hood easy, to get to, air. Cleaners, right on top easy accessibility. Heavy-duty. Battery toolkit. And this, might be my favorite accessory, of all the, speed management. System, turn, the key pull it out let, your kid Drive and he can't go over 25 miles an hour so. There you have it the brand-new, Wolverine. X4. So, get out and see the guys at Steadman's and let them help you and your family get into one of these Wolverine X fours for your next family ride I'm, Rick Peterson and, we'll be right back with more at your leisure.

Called City of Rocks it's one of the premier rock climbing rappelling, and bouldering places in the entire world, and. The problem is when you get here the campgrounds, don't.

So without the RV I'm not much of a camper at. All, I'm not a sleeping. On the ground rolling, in the dirt kind of person I make. A lamb park I like, to go camping down to Fairview Canyon, just because it's open and we can take the razor and there's lots of trails down there to pick our razor down there so it's. Cooler it'll, be a little bit cooler when you're up in the mountains it's not bad and I mean there's a lot of people, that live around there that like to go camping there but they're all super friendly and I used, to go to school down there so I know them all and so it's it's fun I love.
