On the first full day of our Vegas vacation, we planned on a day trip to Zion National Park. We found out that from the Strip, the national park is only about 2.5 hours drive - easily doable. Afterall, we've done day trips farther than this.
This road trip stretched to three states: Nevada, Arizona, and Utah. Two and a half hours in the car, a coffee mug filled to the brim, camera with battery fully charged and an incredible landscape, all these conspired to produce the following drive by shots.
Leaving Las Vegas.
A bit dreary.
No traffic - on schedule.
Blue skies here.
Wide open roads, lots of wide open spaces.
Love these kind of road trips.
Entering Arizona Republic.
To say this is a scenic route is an understatement.
More pretty landscape.
We're getting closer to our destination.
More to come from this day trip.
