Mesquite, NV, what can I say about Mesquite? We selected this location because we had been driving awhile after skipping Panguitch (Bryce) and Hurricane, UT (Zion). It is jut across the Arizona/Nevada border, so, as you can guess, it is a casino town. In fact, the RV Park was part of the casino.

We traveled over and through the Virgin Mountains and Virgin River Canyon which gave us a nice drive.

Day 1 - Thurs, Oct 10, 2013
We realized quickly we should have only stayed here one night and moved on. Unless you want to just hang out in the casinos all day, there is nothing else to do. We took a short ride out to Scenic, AZ which turned out to be not that scenic. Came back to RV park and had a 3 hour happy hour then comedy show at the casino, dinner and that was it!

Day 2 - Fri, Oct 11, 2013
We have reservations in Vegas for tonight, but, on checking my mail this morning, my wonderful daughter sends me a link that Utah is opening up their National Parks by Saturday! Hooray for Utah! So, guess what ....... we are backtracking just a bit to catch Bryce and Zion. We are so darned lucky. Someone up there is looking out for us! Backtracking to Mt Carmel, UT. I guess it was karma we didn't stay just the one night in Mesquite!

Yea! I'm glad you are going to get to see Zion & Bryce! We really enjoyed both of those parks when we made our trip!
