On this throwback Thursday, I’m taking a trip down memory lane, looking back at a road trip that I took a few years ago through Nevada, Utah and Arizona. The trip started in Nevada where I, along with good friends, spent a few days in Las Vegas walking around the city, taking in a couple of shows (The Beatles LOVE Cirque du Soleil and Penn & Teller at the Rio Theater) and enjoying the atmosphere, food and attractions (ex: Freemont Street Experience, High Roller at the LINQ). While in Nevada, we also went to check out the Hoover Dam.
Next stop was Zion National Park in Utah which was absolutely incredible. I definitely remember how sunny and hot it was. I was looking for shade from the intense sun. Took a lot of great pictures and the scenery was unbelievable. We only spent a few hours in Zion National Park but it was amazing!
In Arizona, we made stops in Page, Sedona and Phoenix. We visited the Grand Canyon, Horseshoe Bend, the Glen Canyon Dam, the Lowell Observatory, Red Rock State Park, we took a boat tour on Lake Powell in Page, did the Pink Jeep Broken Arrow Tour in Sedona, visited McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park and the Penske Racing Museum, just to name a few. We had planned to do a hot air balloon ride too, but due to weather, the hot air balloon ride was grounded.
It was a wonderful trip and I look forward to doing it again in the future.

Fun Fact: In my post, In A World of Loops and Smart Instruments, I mention that the track “The Journey” was inspired by a recent road trip. This is the road trip that brought about the inspiration for that track along with “Charting The Course,” “A Call To Action,” “Reflection in Time,” “Paradise,” “On The Road,” and “Onwards.” You can check out all these tracks on the Media page under Music Exploration.
