Las Vegas

I had a few more than I thought. This didnt turn out like I would have hoped. I cannot tell you how beautiful it was to come around the corner after nearly 23 hours of driving and see these lights. It was utterly breathtaking. If you ever drive to Las Vegas, plan your arrival at dusk...its just amazing how bright and beautiful this is.
This is a mountain in Utah. I think this picture turned out pretty awesome. My husband cannot get enough of Utah...I can take it or leave it after seeing it 3 times,,,,he still gets amazed.
This photo--cracked us all up. Janell (DIL) who is 8 months pregnant--had to stop and go potty. We pulled into this pretty desolate station and all that was there was this cage,,filled with grass, dented in and look at that sign!!!! Pet Exercise Area-and even funnier...Please keep it clean!!!! We just had to laugh.
This is Colorado on the way in. Its become one of our normal pitstops to get out and walk--go potty etc. It was kinda cool here, in the 60's. Its amazing how the temps change from state to state--and in Colorado from town to town. You can go literally from the 80's to the 40's in sometimes less than 2 hours. It also will be sunny and hot--then cloudy and snowing. You dont get to see those kinds of things when you fly.

I wish I had taken more--but like I said--we just werent thinking.

7 Thanks for your comments!:

Great sightseeing. I've driven around Utah too, the mountains are neat, but I'm a beach girl at heart..., I'm sure Las Vegas by night is magical!

Hi Dawn:
If you went through Utah to Vegas, you were within a mile of my house. I can see I-15 freeway from my back pasture. The red mountains of Utah, going through St.George are beautiful. When you were coming through our area last week, it was cool. It finally warmed up though, we are going to be 91 today.
