This week we are visiting the southwestern US and arrived in canyon country yesterday. Wow, the scenery just driving here from Las Vegas was breath taking! Here are two wonderful experiences that were unexpected. First, driving out of Vegas on interstate 15, the interstate passes directly through Virgin River Canyon. I can not imagine what it took to build this stretch of road, but it is one of the most spectacular views from a highway that I have ever seen.
The second treat was a the Rocking V Cafe in Kanab Utah. A restaurant in the small town of Kanab Utah conveniently located between the north rim of the Grand Canyon, Zion and Bryce National Parks. Some of the best prepared food I have ever had and the prices are quite reasonable. The corn meal crusted pan fried ruby trout is to die for.
