The wife and I spent last week in Vegas. We decided to rent a car to go explore the desert. We thought about a Ferrari, Viper, Lotus... but I kept telling her I just wanted a Jeep. She finally gave in and it was a little ole 2010 Wrangler that we picked up from "Dream Car Rentals" on Las Vegas Blvd.
I had a blast. While the Jeep wasn't tricked out with options by any means, it was a Jeep and felt right at home in the desert. Here's a shot of our friend for the day:
And some shots of the great places it took us.
I'll be doing that again next year! Only next time I'm taking some of the old Spanish trails that pass through abandon mining towns. We didn't get around to doing the rental until the last day so we didn't have enough time to take in all the sights. Next time it will be better planned and Bitter Springs Trail will be on my destination list.
