Let's get started

Las Vegas spaghetti bowl

This blog is dedicated to describing a popular automotive day-trip from Las Vegas, Nevada to Zion National Park, Utah. This easy trip of 165 miles (one-way) starts out in a low elevation Mojave Desert valley and then climbs steadily northward into the canyon carved mesa country of Utah's high plateaus. Along the way we'll examine the history, geology, culture and scenic beauty of this magnificent slice of the American West. Enjoy the journey.
