Uneventful journey today from Rock Springs to St. George. Scenery, of course, is fantastic, you begin to not see it, numb to the stunning beauty all around. Drove Utah from top to bottom, mostly at a legal 80 miles per hour. Took the scenic route through Heber Valley instead of the interstate, then cruised the Provo Main Street, dodging students from BYU. Worth it. Going through Vegas tomorrow, then on to the Inland Empire.
Nice dinner at the local Outback tonight where the entire room was filled with 65 plus diners -- some elderly ladies clad in classic furs, even though the outside temp was a pleasing 55 degrees. St. George is definitely a retirement town, and we were there amongst our people.
Evening rush starts at 5:30 p.m. We were seated immediately.

Now i'm jealous. Must get to Utah. not necessarily to St George! I found I got depressed when we went to the older folks' bar in Palm Desert, that looking at the surgeon-restored faces (or not, as the case may be) depressed me. Maybe i'm more used to it by now. This was a sort of a 'hustler' bar, where everyone looked great sitting down, but couldn't move much once they struggled to their feet. Kinda comical, but as I said, now I'm--ahem--a little more used to such phenomena.Anyway, Bon chance on your drive tomorrow.
