South-Western Loop - Las Vegas to Zion

Enough civilisation for now, leaving Las Vegas for Zion National Park.

A slight detour allows for visiting the Hoover Dam, a miracle of modern engineering.

The Shoreline of Lake Mead is the backdrop for getting to Interstate 15, the road to Utah.

Reaching Springdale, UT, the town at the gate of Zion after a 3 hour drive. I take a first little trip through the park after booking a nice room at the Driftwood Lodge. The day ends with a delicious dinner, local rainbow trout.
