Leaving Nevada and Onward to Utah

Hank – See what Kathy says below.

Kathy – After getting the kids to the airport, Hank and I had to get a few chores done. We checked out of the hotel, did laundry, hit up REI to pick up a few dehydrated meals and stuff, then we stopped by the grocery store for a few items. We rode around Vegas on the bikes and then headed out towards St. George, Utah.

Since we had time, we decided to take a detour to Valley of Fire State Park which is about an hour or so drive just outside of Las Vegas. Three years ago we were here and did some hiking. It is such beautiful country that we decided to visit the area again. Happy to report that Valley of Fire State Park is just as stunning today as it was three years ago. Totally in awe at the magnificent landscapes. I probably took a few hundred pictures throughout the day, but we can only post a limited number to the blog. So enjoy them. 😊

We drove to St. George, Utah and are calling it a night. We found a cheap and clean hotel that only cost us a couple of dollars more than if we were to tent it for the night. Beds are most always more comfortable than blow up sleeping mats.

We will ride tomorrow in Utah our 38th state. It really seems crazy that we have come so far since we left Spokane not quite eleven months ago. Yes we have used rental cars now and then due to crazy weather and a few other incidents. However with that said, we still have somewhere between 7,000 – 8,000 miles of riding on our bikes also. It’s been an amazing journey so far. We are looking forward to riding tomorrow…good night.

A couple of notes…
