Almost stayed at the Circus Circus -- there's a fantastic Sun-Thur rate -- but they don't allow pets in the rooms, only in kennels (who says, "Oh, let's take the animal with us on vacation and leave it in a cage with lots of strange animals"?). Maybe someday I can come back without the cat. Nah, never mind. The cat's the best part about this trip.

First thing: managed to successfully sneak my cat out of the hotel. Whew!
  • Salt Lake City: smoggy.
  • Salt Lake: astounding. Also smelly.
  • Salt flats: bizarre.

Strange Things of the Day:
  • Strange Thing The First: this. Pretty cool, actually.
  • A van carrying, apparently, the Red Elvises ("Kick-Ass Rock n Roll from Siberia!")
  • I didn't get a picture (my camera battery died, and my phone camera isn't powerful enough) but fortunately somebody else did (many other people, apparently): "Deeth Starr Valley"

Pretty much it for today, as I'm wicked tired. Nevada was a very long drive. Pretty, but kind of desolate. I wanted to go to the Thunder Mountain Monument, but by the time I got to Winnemucca I was already pretty exhausted and still had three hours to go. Maybe I'll come back sometime.

Dude, a friend of mine LOVES the Red Elvises. They're her favorite band.

They were in an indie film called "Six-String Samurai". Very cool stuff. And to hell with any hotel that won't let you keep you pet with you.

Talk to you soon! Hope you got a good night's sleep. So sorry about the hotel!

The Red Elvises live near me. We see their van all the time. You should check out their music.
