Over The Rocky Mountains We Go ~ Road Trip

Over The Rocky Mountains We Go ~ Road Trip

The Rocky Mountains (Rockies) was home for me for decades. Many of my ancestors crossed over these mountains to settle the Salt Lake Valley. These gorgeous mountains brought each seasons beauty with exceptional colors. Heading over the Rockies my sister, Cherie, joins for the rest of the journey.

Utah Rocky Mountains Road Travel 4Chion Lifestyle

Utah Rocky Mountains

Growing up near the mountains, the seasons each bring a wonderful set of adventures. Mount Timpanogos, a view seen from the deck of my childhood home, is the second highest mountain the Wasatch Range. It is a great place for:

  • Summer
    • hiking including to Timpanogos Cave
    • camping
    • fishing
    • river rafting
    • boating
    • Alpine Slide in Park City 
    • Seven Peaks Water Park
  • Fall
    • Drive the Alpine Loop at the peak of the leave colors
    • Picnicking
    • Visit Bridal Veil Falls
  • Winter
  • Spring
    • Thanksgiving Point
    • Utah Film Festival
    • Crandall Historical Printing Museum (covers 400 years of printing)

The area has exceptional art and culture events as well. This is a great place for family road trips and staying for a week of fun.

Lunchtime

Leaving Utah County through Spanish Fork Canyon is a beautiful drive. Spanish Fork Canyon goes south over Soldier Summit (7,477 ft.) and then back down through Price Canyon. The drive is very scenic and great for Geology fans. It is full of wildlife. The Rocky Mountains are such a beautiful relaxing place to play and explore.

We stop in Green River just before Colorado. Lisa Sherman recommended having lunch at Ray’s Tavern. This was our first travel contest. Congrats, to Wes Hawkins at Utah Travels for knowing what city we were enjoying lunch. We ordered the chicken sandwich and a Garden Burger®. They had a Utah tradition on fry sauce, created by Don Carlos Edwards in the 1950s. It is as simple as ketchup and mayonnaise whipped together. I have seen variations with adding sour cream or buttermilk. This was a treat for sure. It was a great place. The waitress extremely friendly and the food fresh, including the fries.

Colorado Rocky Mountains

Full and ready to get through Colorado to Denver. We hit the road again and see the landscape change more. You lose sight of the Rocky Mountains. The Green Rivers flow into Colorado River (the mighty river that creates the Grand Canyon). The highway follows this along through Colorado Rockies.

Cherie and Tammy Road Trip 4chion lifestyle
Cherie and Tammy Road Trip

The I-70 takes on new meaning to the Rockies. You enter this large canyon and marvel at the engineering feat you are driving. Colorado River runs through the narrow canyon that has two-lane traffic in each direction through Glenwood Canyon. The rain and temperature begin falling. Soon iMaps lets us know that we are not going to make to Denver for the night. The freeway closes just up the road for snow. I need to find a hotel before they fill-up. We find the Eagle River Lodge. This was a perfect place to stay for the evening.

The driving time cut short we enjoyed an evening of great local food and beauty time. Cherie went out to pick-up dinner from Luigi’s Pasta House salad and a medium vegetable pizza. After dinner, we enjoyed a night of cleansing, moisturizing, and using masks on our faces and lips with Burt’s Bees. I have been on the road for a week and traveling through various climates, different types of soap and water, and sleeping locations my skin was feeling tired and dry. Burt’s Bees is so wonderful. Cherie even enjoyed the results. When on a road trip it is important to remember to take care of your skin. Playing on the television in the room was a marathon of Tom Hank’s movies. We head off to sleep for another day of road tripping across the US.

The Journey to Zions and Beyond ~ Road Trip

The Journey to Zions and Beyond ~ Road Trip

Planning the road trip across the US there was a detour from Yellowstone National Park due to weather. The next best stop for national parks was Zions National Park just off highway 89 in Utah. Stopping in Page to meet with high school friends and fill up for the next leg of the journey to Zions and Utah.

Page Arizona to Kanab Utah

It was a great morning meeting with Jeff Lott and his beautiful wife at Ranch House Grille where we enjoyed reconnecting and enjoying a beautiful breakfast. Leaving Page Arizona you cross Glen Canyon Dam taking you into the beautiful1.25 million acres of the Glen Canyon National Recreational Area. This area is home to Lake Powell, a place that brings fun, sun, and water sports to the southwest. The white ring you can see is known as the bathtub ring and a formed from calcium carbonate deposits.  A few of great activities in the area include:

  • Boating
  • Camping
  • Rainbow bridge (only accessible by boat or 14-mile hike)
  • Escalante Arm
  • Fishing (a favorite of foodie Ellie)

Zions National Park is about 104 miles from Page. It is a beautiful drive as the landscape changes from the red rocks to a borderline Mediterranean climate. Kanab is the first town you come to after Page. This town is the center of all sorts of great outdoor adventures including  Vermilion Cliffs National Monument, Bryce Canyon National Park, the Grand Canyon (North Rim). This is well-known for the great Hollywood film production. A few of the films produced in this region are:

  • Stagecoach (1939) 
  • The Lone Ranger
  • Death Valley Days
  • Duel at Diablo
  • Planet of the Apes (1968)
  • Buffalo Bill (1944)

Zions National Park

Highway 89 takes you to the stunning and resplendent Zions National Park. This park became a national park when by President Woodrow Wilson in 1919. The park continues to keep the natural beauty with a project called Zions Forever. This project is in place to protect and sustain the park for all living beings and future generations. This is a leave no trace area. You need to make sure that you have trail etiquette and leave nothing behind:

  • Remove all waste (make sure you use the restroom you must take this waste of the trail)
  • Keep dogs on a leash
  • Place trash in designated receptacles
  • Be considerate of other visitors
  • Hike quietly
  • Enjoy the sound of nature
  • Hike in single file
  • Ascending hikers have the right of way
  • Have plenty of water this is a desert terrain
  • Be ready for changes in weather from rain forecasts, extreme heat or cold
  • Careful on trailheads they are slippery

You enter the park, there is a $30 fee, but well worth it. The canyon stretches 15 miles long and spans up to half a mile deep. You drive on the Zions-Mount Camel Highway that winds slowly downgrading with gorgeous views of Navajo Sandstone that is tan, cream, pink, and red color. There are locations where you can see hanging moss, trees at different angles, and   You follow the Virgin River on the path taken to carve this canyon. It is so It was fantastic seeing the snow against the colored mountains. You pass through several tunnels. There is a tunnel that is more than a mile long. This is one impressive drive even in the dark. You continue down the hill until you reach the visitors center.

This was a wonderful journey on the road trip. Many years as a child this was one place we enjoyed as a family. It was a sunny bright day just as winter was beginning to change to spring. There is plenty of lodging in the area as well as food and restaurants.

Orem, Utah

The remainder of the drive continued on interstate 15 to Orem Utah where I grew up. It was wonderful getting to a warm home with my parents. The days filled with reconnecting with friends and family before continuing the road trip.

Meeting up with my dear friend Lisa Sherman was like we never missed even one day, even though it had been a few decades. Lisa and I have known each other since we were three. We ran the neighborhood streets as two determined little girls could. We enjoyed breakfast at Joe’s Cafe. The food was so delish. Lisa even enjoyed the grits. A dish she was convinced she did not like. Joe said, “You will love them. Nothing comes between your lips and my grits.” It was so wonderful catching up with Lisa after all these years.

Dinner was a fabulous reunion with my bestie from high school, Brenda Anderson. She and I meet at the Spicy Thai in Orem. This was an excellent choice for the food was excellent. Their menu had a great selection of Thai food with the ability to choose your heat.  The evening ended at her home where we spent time catching-up, relationships talk, and a little (very little) drinking. Her cute little dogs entertained up throughout the evening. They are both such a ball of energy.

The next day was spent with my parents. We enjoyed dinner at King’s Buffet. My time with my mother we went over old photos, stories, and the fun times we shared in our life. She brought me a photo of my first haircut that she taped back together after tearing. My father enjoyed being the dad he has always been, making sure the car is ready for the next part of the journey. He took to put Rain-X on the windows. This was a great addition to the journey. Stay tuned for all the details in the next part of the journey.

Each dish enjoyed this evening brought a new experience to something familiar. We enjoyed the Navajo burger (with a vegetarian patty), club sandwich (served gluten-free) and Navajo taco (made with Blue Bird flour). Ellie enjoyed a milkshake and nibbling off everyone’s plate. Miss “Foodie” (Ellie) really recommends their fantastic french fries.  The menu includes the Navajo language providing a fun conversation with the staff.  We enjoyed the local flavors and an expansion of cultures. The food to the ambiance provided a complete experience with cultural diversity.

The dining room is a place that feels like a large welcoming dining room. It is decorated in traditional Native America artifacts and a large stone fireplace, it was a beautiful addition to the atmosphere and ties well with the menu. The ceiling a pressed tin is so intriguing.  The beauty outside the cathedral windows is breathtaking. You can see the gorge and the suspension bridge (built-in 1911 for highway 89 traffic) from this place. The sunsets here are magnificent with the gorge and bridge.

Wolfgang Puck’s Oscars’® Governors Ball Recipe ~ Chicken Pot Pie

Wolfgang Puck’s Oscars’® Governors Ball Recipe ~ Chicken Pot Pie

Create Chicken Pot Pie just like the celebrities enjoy at Oscar’s® night. There is planning the menu, shopping, and creating all the wonderful dishes. Wolfgang Puck, catering service for the 90th Oscars® is busy as well preparing the food for the Governors Ball.

Puck a renowned Chef and works with CEO Carl Schuster, they continue to set the standard for culinary excellence at the Governors Ball. He revolutionizes the dining landscape with a singular focus: to exceed expectations when our guests gather for a meal. This year is no different for the event of the year, The Academy Awards®. He is staying true to using fish and seafood that is Watch compliant and locally sourced ingredients. They are coming from:

This year’s menu includes his famous Chicken Pot Pie. This will include 1,000 pounds Pasturebird chicken and 100 pounds carrots to feed the hungry celebrities. This is a simple recipe that will be a dish that is easy to create and serve individually.

CHICKEN POT PIE

(recipe courtesy Wolfgang Puck, adapted from “Wolfgang Puck Makes it Easy,” Rutledge Hill Press, 2004)

Yield: Serves 4

2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken, cut into 1-inch chunks

Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

4 tablespoons vegetable oil

4 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided

1/2 pound organic red-skinned potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch pieces

1/2 pound organic carrots, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces

1 medium yellow onion, peeled and diced

2 garlic cloves, minced

Pinch of crushed red pepper flakes

1 sprig thyme

1 bay leaf

1 cup white wine

2 cups organic chicken stock

1 cup plus 1 tablespoon heavy cream

1/4 cup dry sherry

1/2 cup shelled or frozen peas

Approximately 1/2 pound frozen puff pastry, defrosted following package instructions

1 cage-free egg

Season the chicken pieces with salt and pepper, and toss in a mixing bowl with 2 tablespoons of

the flour until evenly coated. In a large skillet over high heat, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil. Add

the chicken pieces, reduce the heat slightly, and sauté, turning them occasionally, until light

golden and thoroughly cooked, about 5 to 10 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the

chicken to a plate and set aside. Add the remaining oil and 2 tablespoons of the butter to the pan,

then add the potatoes, carrots, and onions and sauté until they begin to look glossy and bright, 2

to 3 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium, stir in the garlic, red pepper flakes, thyme, and bay

leaf, and sauté, just until the vegetables begin to color slightly, 2 to 3 minutes more.

Add the wine, turn up the heat, stir and scrape with a wooden spoon to deglaze the pan deposits,

and simmer until the liquid reduces by about half, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the chicken stock and the

1 cup of cream. Bring the liquid to a boil, reduce the heat slightly, and simmer briskly until the

liquid reduces by about half again and is thick and creamy about 15 minutes. Remove the sprig

of thyme and the bay leaf. Stir in the reserved chicken pieces and the sherry. Stir together the butter

and remaining flour and stir this paste into the mixture. Season the sauce to taste with salt and pepper.

Transfer to 4 large individual ovenproof 2-cup soup bowls, 4 ramekins of the same size, or a 2-quart baking

dish. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until the filling is cold, at least 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Make sure the puff pastry is no thicker than 1/4 inch. With

the tip of a sharp knife cut the pastry into 4 circles that will overhang the rim of the serving

bowls or ramekins by about half an inch; for a single large baking dish, cut 4 circles that will

cover its top, or use one large sheet.

In a small bowl, beat together the egg and the remaining 1 tablespoon cream to make an egg

wash. Brush the tops and outsides of the rims of the bowls. Place the bowls, ramekins, or

baking dish on a baking tray and place the puff pastry circles on top, pressing them gently over

the sides of the dishes. Pierce the tops with the tip of a paring knife. Brush the top of the pastry

with egg wash. Carefully transfer the baking sheet to the oven and bake until the filling is

bubbling hot and the pastry is a deep golden brown, 25 to 35 minutes. Serve hot.

Serve with this great non-alcoholic drink. The inspiration is every great hero needs a faithful sidekick. The drink offers a thoughtful combination of the vibrant hibiscus, fresh citrus and effervescent tonic complemented by an elegant garnish.

Epicurious has a perfect Beet Risotto recipe for your Golden Globe party.

INGREDIENTS

    • 4 cups low-sodium chicken or vegetable broth
    • 3 medium red or golden beets (about 1 pound)
    • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
    • 3 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
    • 1 1/4 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper, divided
    • 1 1/2 cups arborio rice
    • 4 teaspoons white wine or Champagne vinegar, divided, plus more
    • 3 tablespoons heavy cream
    • 4 tablespoons coarsely chopped parsley, divided
    • 2 ounces fresh goat cheese crumbled or parmesan cheese (optional)

PREPARATION

Bring broth and 5 cups water to a boil in a large pot over high heat. Reduce heat to low and gently simmer.

    1. Meanwhile, peel beets, then coarsely shred using a food processor fitted with the shredder attachment or the large holes of a box grater.
    2. Heat a large wide pot or sauté pan over medium-high. Cook butter and oil, stirring occasionally, until butter melts. Add onion and sauté until softened and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add beets, 1 tsp. salt, and 1/2 tsp. pepper and sauté until tender, about 10 minutes more.
    3. Add rice and cook, stirring constantly, about 2 minutes, then add 1 1/2 cups broth, 3 tsp. vinegar, and 1 tsp. salt. Reduce heat to medium and simmer, stirring constantly, until liquid has evaporated. Continue adding broth, 3/4 cup at a time as the rice absorbs liquid, stirring constantly and simmering until rice is tender, 30–40 minutes; season with 1 tsp. salt and 1/2 tsp. pepper halfway through. About 2 minutes before rice is al dente, add cream, 2 Tbsp. parsley, remaining 1 Tsp. vinegar, 1/2 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. pepper.
    4. Divide among 4 plates or bowls, then top with goat cheese, if using, and remaining 2 Tbsp. parsley.
