Well it’s official, we are all arched, canyoned and hiked out so have come to Las Vegas for a rest!! I know, ‘a rest’ you say! Yes, for the next three days we will lounge around the pool, weather permitting, yesterday we had temperatures between 65 and 75 degrees and today in Las Vegas it’s currently about 100 degrees and we are told that last week it reached 112 degrees, so quite warm! After sunning ourselves we will eat good food, drink good wine and do a little gambling. Speaking of which, tonight we had dinner and then had a quick look around the casino because we’ve had quite an exhausting day and are a little weary and gambled $20 (£13 ) on a Monopoly machine and won …………… $440 (£300). So, all in all a good start to our little ‘break’.
On the drive from Panguitch this morning we saw three interesting things but alas, did not have the camera handy so couldn’t take photos. First, was a red and white lighthouse in the middle of the desert, second was a sign on the interstate saying ’80 mph’ …. how many of those do you see in the UK and thirdly was a large roundabout, how many of those do you see in the US ….. answer, not many.
It was our intention to stop off at Zion National Park this morning but the crowds were so bad we decided to give it a miss. We have been to Zion so it was no big deal. We did see this tepee on the way out though. Bookings being taken now!!
