For those wanting an adventure, Interstate 15 connects Salt Lake City to LasV egas via a 7 hour drive that passes the amazing Bryce Canyon & Zion National Parks. This is true American “painted desert.” I-15 also connects San Diego and Los Angeles to Las Vegas (the drive is about 4-5h), permitting arrival at LAX, SNA, SAN, or ONT as viable airports. October is, generally speaking, an outstanding time to drive in the desert, with temperate days and very clear nights full of stars. Those with a car may also wish to head south of Las Vegas, visiting the Hoover Dam and the ‘North Rim’ of the Grand Canyon. (*The Matrix Letter 17.2)
