May 18, 2012. On The Road From Vegas To Cedar City Utah.


The Hawthornes left Las Vegas
and headed to Cedar City, Utah.
Enjoy the scenery.

See those two tiny dots in the center?



and we got to see a lot of jets
during our stay in Vegas.




Don't know what kind of mining is going on here,
although I do know there is rare earth mining outside of Vegas
- the only rare earth mining in the Western Hemisphere.




Middle of the desert
and here's a green green golf course.




















Only a few millions of years of geologic processes
going on to produce what I'm looking at.











Storm brewing ahead.























Stay tuned for Bryce Canyon,
where you'll see some outstanding scenery
and get a geology lesson.

One of my dreams is to drive the Virgin River Canyon.

Lovely drive. As long as you're there, Bryce Canyon is a must-see. Beautiful!
