    Is it worth the 3 hour drive from Vegas? Trying to decide between that and the Valley of Fire which is only an hour away from Vegas as an activity during my trip next week.

    They're both beautiful. I lived in Vegas 20+ years, and highly recommend both. If you have to choose, Zion.

    P.S. Where ya stayin in Vegas?

    Staying at The Rio because it's free :) I'm leaning towards Zion just wasn't sure if the 6 hour round trip would be worth it, we do have a rental car with unlimited miles though.

    Yeah the Park Rangers will probably be a bunch of stupid hunks who think they know everything.

    Zion is amazing. That whole part of Utah is beautiful. (Unlike the northern part where I am.)

    Of course, I usually do pretty well at the $1/$2 cash tables.

    Hmmmm... I was thinking about driving from Laughlin to sit at a table with ya, but not for $1/$2. Rake eats you alive.

    Glad you do well with it tho.

    The Rio :chair:

    Go to Zion & get out of the car to hike the Narrows or Angels Landing. Rent a bike and cruise around the park plus check out the Mormon pie shop.

    Careful speeding, my ticket in a little hick town was a few hundy and I couldn't fight it or go to school to clear it :mad:

    I've been and it's pretty fucking sweet. Hotter than hell when I went in July 2011 (104 degrees). Maybe a little more bearable this time of the year. I didn't get to hike the Narrows but that looked killer. We did the emerald pool trail and it was pretty spectacular.
