So the weather in Michigan sucks balls. It was like three weeks with no sun. So while surfing one night, stumbled onto some cheap roundtrip tickets to Vegas. Then rented a JLU sport. Acually two of them because I missed my return flight and stayed an extra three days. Eight days in total. The second JLU sport was bone stock except for the 8-speed auto. Did a bunch of light off roading and sight seeing. Did not spend anytime in the casinos expect to grab breakfast one morning at the Hash House a Go Go.

The first JLU was nicely equipped. We off roaded around Lake Mead, then did a day in Red Rock Cayon and took the trail up to the top of the mountain pass out of Willow Springs pull off in Red Rock.

Great idea! Will keep in mind. I am in Vegas for ConExpo in March but don't think I have time to get away. I have seen a TON more Jeeps at car rental places all over North America. Probably catching on that they are rugged and easier to fix than other makes.

So I turned in the silver JLU but missed our flight. Not a big deal, found a return flight for 74 dollars, and stayed an extra 3 days. Fuck it lets rent another Jeep. Got this one for 25 dollars a day. We zipped out to Zion National Park, Cruised through Lake Mead Recreational Area and did the Valley of Fire. I have been all over and Zion is one of the prettiest places in the US. Valley of Fire is awesome also and great for day hiking.

We did a quick drive through Zion as it was mid afternoon when we got there.

@wibornz You took some stunning phots, I wish could capture views like that, but unfortunately framing a good shot is not a talent I have!
Looks like you had a great trip.

Really great pics! The pics with the moon are especially spectacular! Were the pics on a cell phone or camera?

Ted, Looks like a great time in the desert southwest and a great way to stay out of the cold of the north. I love the desert in the winter. Im going to have to do more of that since I recently retired.
regards
Chuck

Sometimes I forget the beauty this state has to offer, I have lived in Vegas for forty nine years and forgot to live a little while raising family but now I am retired and have a new Jeep so I cannot wait to hit the trails. Thank You for showcasing The Beauty of Las Vegas and surrounding areas including Utah..
