Alaska Trip Day 6: Las Vegas → Grand Canyon West

422km 3’52” . Looks like fine, high country desert driving
Weather 0-20C, 25%RH, Sunny.
[Remember: this is just a Virtual Virus Vacation. It’s what I had booked before had to cancel coz Covid-19].
Nevada, dipping into Arizona, and then Utah. One of the places with no driving limit, iirc.This should be magnificent driving. Expecting the roads like in outside Albuquerque of Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul.  Like that. Good roads, few cars, high skies, mesas and buttes...
(On second thoughts, maybe not. Maybe full of tour buses from LA to the Grand Canyon.  We’ll see. Eventually).
Staying at a place called Hualapai Lodge on Grand Canyon West and on Route 66.
Just checked it out. Can you imagine this photo on their website, OMG! They’re actually advertising this!
Yuck!! BMI plus, baby!
As for the rest of it, seems to be desert-would-be-chic style, but not quite making it....
But let’s not forget the Grand Canyon! Yay. Which we’ll do on the way to the Lodge or the next morning.
And you can rent a Harley to tootle around the rim....
