St. George - Las Vegas
It had rained and rained and rained during the night and most of the streets in St. George were flooded. Leaving the town, we past the stately Mormon Temple and then joined the I-15 south.
We took a detour to Valley of Fire State Park which is literally on fire - the red rocks certainly give that impression.
In Las Vegas we stayed in the Luxor Hotel and Casino at the south end of the Strip. We actually had a room in the pyramid and the ride up the elevator, I mean inclinator, is a funny feeling. This is a lift that moves diagonally.
We spent the rest of the day and most of the evening going into all the theme hotels along the Strip. We even visited the demostration room of the new Venetian hotel. This standard room looked like a luxury room in any other hotel. We ate at the Rainforest Cafe in the MGM Grand Hotel - an experience in itself.
