Virgin Utah to Las Vegas Nevada

Our stay in the Virgin area exceeded expectations.  We liked the hiking and the biking.  We liked hanging out with Debbie, Jim and Gayle, Bobbie and Mark, and Laurelee.  It was an excellent meeting up with fellow RVers.
The first half of today's drive from Virgin to Las Vegas on I15 also exceeded expectations.  We have not gone this way before. There's quite a bit of downhill in the beginning, but none of it rated a mention in the Mountain Directory West.  It's not as red as the area around Zion, but it's still pretty amazing scenery.

And then you get to Las Vegas.

We're here for two nights.  Then it's on to Needles, and then to Tucson.  We were going to go to Blythe, bur the next to the last F1 race is on Sunday at 1:00 PDT (NBC) and we want to be sure we're in early enough to watch it.  They're running it in Austin, TX of all places.  Lewis Hamilton is leading the points race over Nico Rosberg and we're really really hoping he hangs on to the lead.  Nico and Lewis are team mates, but their rivalry this season has just been riveting.

  1. Is that smog? If so I'd have to visit after a storm cleared the bad air out! Lovely views on the there though .
