Yes, as I've mentioned before, gas is a dollar a gallon cheaper over in Nevada than here at home. But, there are so many other, most interesting, reasons for us to head east into our adopted state.

Sounds like a hot, but enjoyable trip, maybe even better without the Mormon crickets parachuting out of the cottonwood trees.  Nice rock art!


Thanks for letting us tag along!

Wow! A beacon bonanza, plentiful petroglyphs, great geology, loads of lizards, sterling strolls, peaceful panoramas, crazy crickets and as lagniappe, Cajun conversation. Y'all packed in a lot in a short trip. Big fun! Thanks for sharing!

Your report got me wondering about those crickets. A quick search showed that they were a food source for various Indian tribes.


It seems to me that if early peoples found them tasty, and you guys think they stink, then the Indians found a better way to prepare them than just walking on them, eh?  :)



ps. Whatever you do, don’t let Bill Gates learn of this food source
