The Great Southern Arizona Road Trip - August 28 - Part XXI - End of the trip - Back to Las Vegas through the Virgin River Gorge

And so it was farewell to Utah. We returned to Ancestor Square for an early lunch at Benja's Thai and Sushi.
Benja's Thai and Sushi Restaurant - underneath The Painted Pony

Benja Peterson, owner of the Benja restaurants, became a Buddhist nun at age 18 in her native Thailand. She learned to cook by cooking for the monks.

For lunch, we shared fresh basil rolls, Thai coconut shrimp, red curry special of the day with pumpkin, Thai iced tea)

Then we headed for I-15 back to Las Vegas. We drove through the magnificent Virgin River Gorge in the northwest corner of Arizona, between St. George, Utah and Littlefield, Arizona. That section of the I-15 is one of the most expensive parts of interstate highway ever constructed.

A magnificent finish to The Great Southern Utah Road Trip.
