50 hot miles to Hite marina

In our last post, we cycled through beautiful Capitol Reef National Park and on to Hanksville, where we camped in the desert ~ 9 miles outside of town, in preparation for the hot ride to Hite Marina (at Lake Powell – however, due to the low levels of the lake, there is no water access at this “marina”) – 50 miles with no water & no services.

This is how we spent the night at Hite Marina…it never really cooled down much…left the next morning before 5am to continue the ride to Blanding, UT
Camping behind the 7-11 in Blanding, after getting a hitch ~ 50 miles from a great local

Join us next time, as we head from Blanding, UT across the border into Dove Creek, CO and stay with a great Warm Showers host for 2 nights.
