Ep. 177: The Wedge | San Rafael Swell | Utah RV travel camping hiking

Avatar admin | November 18, 2020

The Wedge is situated on BLM land about 20 miles east of Castle Dale, in Emery County of central Utah, about two and a half to three hours from Salt Lake City. We've been camping here regularly for the past 15 years for its stunning scenery overlooking the Little Grand Canyon of the San Rafael River over 1,000 feet below, prime boondocking right on the rim, and the vertigo-inducing mountain biking along the Goodwater Trail. With cold autumn weather already prevailing at Utah's higher elevations, this is the perfect place to bring my sister Loren for a taste of RV camping in October.

We've tried it, we've tested it, and we can heartily recommend it. No random stuff or paid product placements.

It costs you no more to shop Amazon with us, but by shopping our store a portion of each sale goes to bringing you more and better Grand Adventure videos! Thank you for clicking through to give us a look!

Welcome to Grand Adventure, a YouTube channel that focuses on RV-centric outdoor activities including not only of course camping, but also mountain biking, hiking, kayaking, skiing and more, always filmed in stunning 4K.

We're based in Salt Lake City, Utah, and invite you to come along as we travel all around the western U.S. My wife Patricia and I, and dog Zoe are avid boondockers, so you'll seldom find us in RV parks or even dry campgrounds. Instead, we're usually camped in some of the most remote and beautiful spots that you could ever pull a travel trailer into. And unlike most other RV channels on YouTube, we're not RV dealers or full-timers -- we're "long-timers" who tend to hit the road for weeks or months at a time, while maintaining a sticks-and-bricks home in Utah.

We'll provide beautiful travel videos, as well as some tips and insight on trip planning, and equipping and maintaining your RV to make your next adventure a grand one indeed! So, subscribe to make sure that you catch every episode, and remember...life is nothing but a Grand Adventure!
