25 Years And Still Going-Day 5 & 6 Southwest February 2012

Leaving Zion is hard as I would like to stay forever and someday maybe I will, but the call of Sin City was large and we had a date with the Blue Man Group. But on the way to Vegas we decided to take the back roads through Lake Mead Recreation Area and the Valley of Fire. The Valley of Fire was Arizona's first state park.

After the Valley of Fire and driving up the Lake Mead Recreational area we decided to see the new Hwy 93 bridge over the Colorado River. The Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge is HIGH! 1800 feet above the Colorado and 900 feet above the level of the Hoover Dam.

Mystere by Cirque Du Soleil was on hiatus while we were in Vegas so we saw BMG
Blue Man Group- you will never look at Twinkies or Capt Crunch the same way again
The plane finally whisks us home- what a great trip!
