It was pretty much the vacation from Hell. First full day of our vaction (before we came to Kanab) my husband broke his ankle. Last full day, my daughter and I both got a nasty stomach bug. Thank goodness for having a really comfortable place to call home during our time in Kanab. The house was immaculately clean and the beds were very comfortable. There was plenty of space. The kitchen was well appointed with just about every kind of applicance you could want, including a really good blender (margaritas, anyone?). I was a little worried about the "swamp cooler" type air conditioner, but the house actually stayed as cool as we could possibly want it, even on 100-degree days. Being able to do laundry easily was such a nice change from staying in a hotel. Especially given the whole "stomach bug" thing (enough said).
As far as Kanab goes, we keep getting drawn back to that area. Maybe we'll retire there some day! Maybe Lynn and Dianne will consider selling in another 20 years or so! ;) Such a great little town and with so much to do within an easy drive. And I think it maybe be the most breath-taking scenery I have ever seen, and I've done a fair amount of traveling.
So, Kanab and Muriel's Place are a great combination, even on a vacation where it seems like everything is going wrong.
