THE ROAD TRIP BEGINS

The girls are reluctant to leave LV, in hindsight an extra night would have been good.

We are soon leaving LV behind and head through Arizona and into Utah.

Tamara's state count now 6.

4 hour journey with stops for coffee and toilets takes us through Red Canyon, where we received a rattle snake warning from the Park Ranger and onto Bryce.

Bryce is unique, stone "Hoodoo's" look like massive crowds at a Roman Amphitheatre (see photo's) in a bright orange rock. Shapes are caused by either wind or water erosion. (check me out!)

The clouds have now arrived and we are treated to lightning flashes all round us, before it starts to rain. We leave the park and stop at Ruby's Inn to visit the gift shop, where the girls bought some ornaments made out of local rock. Lynne & I stayed here in 1994 on a trip, there have been a few changes since then!

Then it's a 2 hour drive to St George to check into a hotel the girls chose, The Inn a Entrada.

OMG what a beautiful place. The girls first saw this place in the movie High School Musical 2, with much of the film filmed around the hotel.

We're in 1702 a villa overlooking a small lake and red stone mountains - breathtaking (see photos's) I am assured we are staying in the villa given to Ashley Tisdale in HSM2, for those interested Zac Efron stayed next door!

While Lynne & the girls went on a photo shoot I went to the local supermarket for T-Bone steaks which we had on my return with some salad - FAB

In bed by midnight.

The place looks beautiful. I am feeling like I am on the trip with you. Can you adopt me?
