Lamoille Canyon – Elko, NV to Eden, Utah 5/10/2013

MAY 10, 2013 (Friday)

 

Before we drove to Eden, Utah, we took a side trip down a very interesting canyon right out of Elko. We had been told about it by a friend who lives in Nevada. Lamoille Canyon is the name of it and it is part of a National Forrest. The nicest thing about it is it is a canyon formed by glaciers and water. The glaciers form U shapes with flat scraped walls and the water forms V shapes. As you look at the info-graphic along side the roadway and glance up, you see exactly what they are writing about.

The graphic explains that the sides that looked scrapped are from glacier action and the V shaped valleys are from water flows.

We then drove to Eden, Utah. There was a lot of road construction going into the canyon, with several miles of one way road, lots of bumps and gravel areas, and on up the hill to Eden. What a lovely area it is. We drove around the man made lake and found a cute little store to buy our groceries. We stopped and did some grocery shopping and then headed up the hill to the resort. Check-in people were fun and friendly. We were invited to an RCI presentation, which we accepted because of the goodies offered and we always want to learn as much as we can. We went to our unit and were blown away. It was lovely. We had gotten a great deal on this two bedroom unit $243.00 for the week. 

We opened the door and the second bedroom was downstairs and to the right. It had two twin beds, no television. The full bathroom was next, then the washer/dryer closet, regular closet, hallway to the fully equipped kitchen, bar with two bar stools (pretty uncomfortable though), Dinning table, living room with couch and two chairs. Wall mounted flat screen TV with DVD player. Also, there was a queen size murphy bed in the wall in the living room, and one in the wall in the master bedroom. Skylight over the staircase. Upstairs a king size bed, wall mounted TV with DVD player, huge bathroom vanity area and separate toilet and tub/shower room. It is a huge unit. Fun. Lovely. Another favorite we’ll add to our list to return to when we can. We also had our own patio with patio chairs, table, and a BBQ. We overlooked a beautiful golf course.

Nice full bathtub/shower combinations with separate vanity areas upstairs and down.

We did have to pay for internet ($15.00 for 10 days), and the internet was slow but we lived with it.

    Oooh I like this one! What a great deal. This would actually accommodate my crew quite nicely. And we wouldn’t even worry the Internet. I wonder if these rates are all year or was this considered off season.

    Ooh and the glacier fields are gorgeous I have only seen the Alaskan and aerial from flight too and from Idaho. You oughta share the villa info on this one. Sounds awesome, I bet they would appreciate the free advertising.
    Plus I selfishly would love to know, like I would ever get out there, but one could dream.
