We began in San Diego, then went to Las Vegas for one night time, subsequent to Park City for 2 nights, adopted by Jackson for 3 nights with a loop again to Park City for one night time and eventually one final night time in Vegas earlier than heading again to San Diego. Perfection! I’m already itching to hit the highway once more.
