Travel Day 1

My wife and I left San Pedro Thursday morning at about 9 AM bound for Utah. One of our goals is to visit with our son and his wife in Salt Lake City, Utah. That’s a little bit much for one day’s travel. Many times we stop in Las Vegas for the night and continue on in the morning.

This year we decided to do something different. This year we decide to visit Zion National Park in Southern Utah. We are staying in a hotel in Hurricane, UT. The distance for this leg is about 430 miles. That’s about the most I can do in a day’s drive.

So we do about 120 miles or about 2 plus hours before stopping. We stopped in Barstow and got a couple of iced coffees at Starbucks. Did a little bit of walking to stretch our legs. Emptied bladders and on the road again.

We stopped in Primm, Nevada to stretch our legs and go to the bathroom. Primm is right across from the CA-NV border. The change in view is drastic. Big tawdry casinos on both sides of I-15.

Next stop after another 125 miles we stopped for gas in Mesquite, NV. Price of gas drops dramatically once you leave CA. Goes from about $3.89/gal to under $3/gallon.

We pulled into our hotel in Hurricane, UT at about 6pm. Unpacked and we went out to dinner at a local steak house. Paula and I had a delicious grilled pork shop and a glass of wine.

Back to the hotel. Getting up on Friday early to head for Zion. Parking lots fill up early. Next post will be all about Zion. We will be in Hurricane until Tuesday when we head north on the I-15 to SLC.
