The road trip - part 1

First a couple of clarifications to previous posts:
- My Mom not only raised me, but birthed me too! Thought I might point that out.
- On this road trip from Phoenix to Seattle, I was not physically stopping by to see some of my bloggy friends....just virtually checking posts when we were hotel bound at night (every hotel has Internet service, beats watching TV). We thought about Digby and Max every day.

Off we go, day one, Phoenix to Cedar City, Utah.

Lady, comfy and snoozy. As usual, she was a very good sport about being cooped up for three days. I tried to make every stop as much fun as I could for her.


Kingman, AZ - a rare treat, In and Out burgers.....yum. Dad just had to stop. Lady didn't mind either (a couple of fries for being so good).


Golden Valley, AZ (really!) - out in the middle of nowhere, a perfect stop to stretch our legs and check pee-mail.


Shuttled through Vegas pretty quickly, drove another hour to Mesquite, NV where we stopped again. Wow, has Mesquite hit hard times. Looks like a ghost town compared to 2003.


Off to Utah....

Through the Virgin River gorge. Very impressive, beautiful geology and colors


These are the red rocks around St. George, Utah. THIS town has really grown. A real hidden gem.

Final destination day 1: Cedar City, where we found a park and a steak house. Lady and I took advantage of both (doggy bag - steak and sweet potato)! Weather was beautiful. A good nights sleep, then off the next morning for Part 2 (coming soon).
