We woke up this morning. I checked my stash and it was the same as it was last night. He didn’t steal my treats and lose them in Vegas. OK, time to leave Vegas. Most Vegas hotels have themes, some you can easily see (New York NY, Paris, the Venetian). Some are just a little harder: Excaliber (King Arthur’s Court Theme), Caesar’s Palace (Ancient Rome), Luxor (it’s in the shape of a pyramid and that’s ancient Egypt) but none of these wanted dogs. We stayed in a theme hotel also, the theme appeared to be retro-very early 21st century commercial. On one side of the hotel was a perfectly restored McDonald’s and on the other side was a pristine condition Walmart Superstore. Soak in some of the atmosphere, close your eyes, and you’ll swear you were back in 2004. Nostalgia-I had tears in my eyes (both places sell FOOD).
We left and the trip through Southeastern Nevada was not worth mentioning. My Sonoran Desert was much prettier than a scrub brush once every 10 yards (meters). We had to reenter the extreme Northwestern tip of Arizona in Interstate 15. We found some really good stuff. We encountered the Virgin River. I thought is might be Branson’s revenge on Arizona by buying a river in retaliation for Arizona having the London Bridge, but no-the Virgin River had no water in it.
On to Utah. Most of the day was spent going from the Arizona-Utah border to North of Salt Lake City. Southern Utah showed red rock (which we saw too much of in our 2010 trip-we didn’t miss a red rock anywhere in Utah).
Since this was the longest day of our trip going to Montana, we bypassed Salt Lake City and waved
We arrived at our destination North of Salt Lake City and were pooped. Once again, I didn’t get my way. I wanted to go to the Bonneville Salt Flats to see where they test cars and set land speed records on the perfectly flat salt. I wanted to see if the flats were realy salt. He said “trust me, Kyla, I wondered the same thing and actually put a pimple into the flats by taking just a little and tasted it. Yup, pure NaCl !”
OK, time to rest. Kaci needs her beauty sleep.
