Day 299: Deep Freeze Camping

Day 299: Deep Freeze Camping

We departed Vail for our two month west coast RV trip on day 299 of the Nowhere To Be Project. We were headed for Route 66 RV Resort in Albuquerque, New Mexico for the night when our well-laid plans were derailed by a fierce winter storm. Outrunning storms is always an inexact science and, once again, we were on the losing side of the gamble. We ended up in the town of Monticello, Utah at sunset when the snow and wind became too much. As fate would have it, there was one RV park that was not closed for the season, Mountain View.

Mountain View RV Park is a tiny roadside enclave of pull through sites situated on the acreage of a private home. A side room off of the house serves as the park’s office. One pet-friendly spot for the night was just $38.14 with tax (and our AAA discount) and was supposed to come with full hook ups and decent wifi. There was just one other inhabitant in the park when we slid into our spot (#22) to find that the water hose was frozen. We were too tired to mess with it and decided that heat was more important than water at this point, so we dry camped for the night. Thankfully, the bathrooms were clean and the hot water abundant. We managed to snap a few photographs of the park before making our way out the following morning. All in all, it was a convenient spot for a short stay and we were very thankful to have happened upon it in our time of need.

Goats on the property make for nice snow buddies!
The tidy restrooms were much appreciated.
