Vegas road trip

From: linda b.
Sent on: Wednesday, April 24, 2013 8:19 PM

I'm here in Sedona for 3 nights after coming down a mountain road that makes Lake Tahoe look tame.  If I had known the road went from 7000 altitude to 4000 and had scary turns, I would have gone another way.

I left home, Oakley, on Monday taking about 12 hours to get to Laughlin stopping for lunch & rest stops.  It was 95 degrees there at 8:30 at night.  Tuesday, it was not so hot but the winds were 50 mph so the swimming pool was out of my thoughts.  There's a River Run festival and thousands of motorcyclists are invading Laughlin.  Travis Tritt is appearing Friday & Credence Clearwater Revisited on Saturday.  I stayed at the Edgewater for $19 a night but no frills, no Wifi, no coffee machine in room and no hairdryer.  I'm at the Days Inn which has all of that & the hotel's in front of Bell Rock.       Bell Rock, Sedona, AZ


I stopped on the way through the desert at Seligman, the town is a whole 3 blocks long, but it's a must see with all the Rt. 66 memorabilia.

I would recommend for people to travel to the SW especially Sedona.  Temperatures are about 75 degrees in the daytime & it is a fantastically gorgeous place with red rocks everywhere,  even shirts made from red rocks.  A Mexican restaurant across the street list snake and cactus on the menu.  I was in Wendys nearby & talked to an older man at length on Sedona and hiking so the people are very friendly.  Plus gas is less here, $3.49 in Laughlin, $3.19 in Bullhead City.

I'm onward to Las Vegas Saturday to Wednesday for a travel show.
