[font color=\'#000000\']Well then, next time you are in Death Valley or parts California, get an It's It if you can. Ice cream and cookie combo. Eat it before you drive off so you can go back in and get one for the road.
In Vegas (and most of the civilized world), get a burger at In & Out. I recommend the double double with onion.
Between Vegas and Barstow is Baker. The town has no reason to exist except for the "tallest thermometer in the world" and the Mad Greek restaurant.
In Mexican Hat, Utah, there is a motel/restaurant (don't remember the name but there aren't all that many choices) that makes a killer Navajo taco.
At the South Rim GCNP, get a window table at the El Tovar dining room and have a drink of your choice as the sun goes down. It's worth a thousand photographs. Food is $$$ and adequate.
At Zion, skip Fanelli's (spelling?) studio. He has some nice work but he is a piece of work. I also find the shuttle bus system a necessary evil and all the reason I need to not go back.
Cedar Breaks is very nice, looks a lot like Bryce w/o crowds. It faces west so different shooting conditions than Bryce. Last time I was there, there was a beetle bloom and plenty of dead trees. A Photoshop challenge to make them green.
The Nevada/southern Utah/northern Arizona area is mostly desert, so photo ops abound and aminities are few and far between. Take your own if you can.
St. George is a pretty complete place. Lots of nearly everything. Even a camera store that had a tripod quick release plate to replace the one I left at home. Saved my day at Antelope for $10.95 plus tax.[/font]
