Viva Las Vegas!!

The wife, kid, and I will be leaving for Vegas on the 26th. We will be driving all 2700 fun filled miles and I'm wondering if anyone has any recomendations on things to see along the way. We will be traveling through NE,CO,UT,NV but I'm willing to take the long way if there is something good. Thanks and if I win big its high pinion D60's for everyone!(except Blown..TTB lover [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img])

Re: Viva Las Vegas!!

Have fun, good LUCK. 2700 miles round trip, right?

Let's see, been awhile, but at the soutern end of Utah you've got Zion national park I think, and of course on the way there is a stop for wheeling in Moab. [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

Depending on which way you go in Colorado, down I25, a detour over to Estes Park/Rocky Mountain National Park would be time well spent. Estes park is Muy Bonita! As I recall, there is also good beer there, and the House that had much of the original shooting done for The Shining (the other part of the footage, the outside lodge stuff, was up at Timberline Lodge here in Oregon).

Also, dependent on route, in way SW Colorado down by Durango, is Mesa Verde national park. Very cool. Have not been there in years though.

I'm a sucker when it comes to local brews, that one of my favorite things, is to test out the local breweries when I travel. The Shining is one of my favorite movies, I may have to look into that. I feel like I have to see Moab, I've never been there but the pics I see are amazing. I don't think the new rig will fare to well there though. Thanks for the info Juice, I'll check it all out.
