Day 4

Not much of a drive today. We made it to St. George without incident and are now laying out by the pool in 103F. I am in HOG heaven. The weather is beautiful and the pool is excellent. My dad came into the lobby of the hotel carrying a 1/2 rack of Corona and two older women gave him a nasty look (we are in Utah) and he said "Lutheran" and they died laughing! I cannot believe he did that, wait yes I can. There should be more to report tomorrow as we have a lot of sights to see. Off to lay in the sun some more and work on my more sunburn...thank goodness!

Today's Hints:

• I was incorporated in 1862
• I sit at 2860’ in elevation
• My zip code is 84770
• I am in Washington county
• I was founded as a cotton mission in 1861
• The pioneers planted mulberry trees throughout the valley to be used to feed the silkworms that they used to produce silk
• I was the location of the 1997 United States Academic Decathlon national finals
• The northeastern edges of the Mojave Desert is visible to my south
• On May 19, 1953, the United States government detonated the 32-kiloton atomic bomb (nicknamed "Harry")
• Jurassic Park was filmed here
