Follow the yellow brick road

My guest blogger, Lisa’s report from her drive across the USA is nearly getting to its end; just one more update from her, as she is well settling in Los Angeles after her epic drive. Here’s from her eight day of driving, when she finally reaches Las Vegas.

63 - Utah.jpg

My drive today from near Salt Lake City, Utah was very nice, not much traffic. The surroundings were not that interesting, with small mountains in the distance.

I listened to mellow 'classic rock' from the 70's & 80's. Terrific road trip music.

I had no idea that I would cross into Arizona for a bit before getting to the Nevada border! It's a good thing I was able to snap a picture of the sign! The 30 mile drive in that sliver of Arizona was breathtaking, then when I crossed into Nevada, the mountains just stopped and it turned into desert again!

The drive that day was less than 6 hours. Coming into Las Vegas, I saw the Strip from a distance. It's so hot here, that it was hazy from a distance.

I returned my car today and blew it a kiss goodbye!! It was a wonderful car to drive.
