Driving to, and now from, Las Vegas we had forgotten how beautiful and majestic the desert can be. Entering St. George was particularly stunning, with huge sandstone cliffs and valleys. We had made reservations at a Marriott Courtyard there and it was a spacious room and hotel. A nice break from the often cramped and dreary Best Westerns- and I never want to ever again stay at the BW’s. At the suggestion of the desk clerk, and the validation by our froiend, Rich Loeffler, we played the Pointe nine at the Sunbrook Golf Course. Nice, mostly wide open, but challenging, fairways and stunning views of the surrounding sandstone cliffs and mountains (see pics). Before golf, we lunched at Iggy’s, across the street from the hotel. Tasty 1/2 pound hamburgers, so we minimized dinner with a sandwich at the motel. The people here looked clean and happy, compared to the grunges in Las Vegas. Maybe we should reconsider the LDS.
