I just spent three lovely days 3 hours (by car) north of Vegas at Zion National Park. It would have been upgraded from lovely to glorious *if* I wasn't a tent camper and the low temp was a little warmer than 45 degrees this morning!
Hey at least I got my favorite bike ride in on Saturday (from our campground just south of Zion NP entrance) to the Temple of Sinawava. I got my ice cream treat for not complaining at the lodge on the way back (here is a map)
This was the view of the Virgin River from the front of our tent:
With a view like that I will not complain! God Bless all of our soldiers who have died for our country and let freedom ring from sea to shining sea!
