Today, we got up bright and early (well maybe not bright, it actually looked like it might rain at Zion) to make our drive to Las Vegas. We hadn’t showered in almost 5 days, so we were excited to get on the road and have hot water and soap!
We took route 9 to I-15, which leads straight to Vegas in a short period of time. I have to say, that of all the roads that I have driven (and that’s been many), the section of I-15 that goes through the Virgin River Gorge is probably the best driving scenery I’ve ever witnessed. High canyon walls, colored rock, winding roads, and hills…it was awesome! It only lasted for about 11 of the 29 miles that you are in Arizona at that point, but it’s worth checking out if you like scenic drives.

The “Blu Pool” at Bally’s was cool. Not huge, but enough space to spread out, good service, and not too many kids. It was easy to find chairs in the sun and we plopped ourselves next to a smaller pool so that we could jump in easily when necessary. And it was necessary within 30 minutes. That sun was hot! Overall, we hung out for about 4 hours, had a couple drinks, and headed in to shower again and get ready to go out for the night.

We headed to Paris to see a comedy show with Aisha Tyler. It was awesome! Her opener was a guy named Ari who has performed on Logo before. (Sorry I can’t remember his last name!) The show was great and so were the buckets of beer that we went through…but by then end, we were starving, and a little beyond tipsy. But we’re in Vegas right?!

At this point, we were both a little irritated, full, but irritated, so we headed back to the hotel and called it a night. Probably good at this point because we are heading to San Diego tomorrow!! Viva Las Vegas!
