Motel and Mustang
The Dixie Palms motel in St George is where I spent last night. It is a comfortable sort of place, with only a couple of dozen rooms. But the big boon is it has a fridge, so I have chilled my enourmous five litre bottle of water and stored it safely in my cool bag.. Not sure how long it’ll last being cold, but every little helps.
After I arrived, I sorted out all my new camping gear into my big rucksack and stowed it away in the car, and rearranged all my luggage - fun times.
Then I realised it was later than I thought, as I had crossed a time zone without realising! I am now in Mountain Daylight Time, and I think will be for the next few days. So I went in search of some food, and found a Mexican grill. I had to ask one of the waitresses how I ordered food etc.
The menu was almost indecipherable (what options I could choose etc), so I decided just to order one of the specials, a pork salad. Here it is, in all its glory:
Surprise surprise, I couldn’t finish it! It was pretty tasty though, and it had ‘everything’ on it..
This morning I woke up to listen to England beating Australia in the first test, which was very exciting! I am now just about to pack up the car, and drive to Zion National Park, I think with the top down.
Then it’s onward to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon overnight.
And so, without further ado, here is the Mustang, in all its top-down glory!
