UTAH CANYON TRIP
We go away each September,
To places we like to remember.
So to help I write a poem.
When we get back to our home.
The Grand Canyon we have seen
And to Yellowstone we have been.
These places we have visited twice,
But we had not seen Zion or Bryce.
So we decided on a date,
When we would visit Utah State.
To see the canyons in the Parks,
See the arches and the landmarks.
But first, as we left Canada,
We had to land in Nevada.
It’s the gambling State I guess,
So we landed in Las Vegas.
This was the start of our trip,
Our hotel was on the Vegas strip.
We didn’t have to spend a dime,
Seeing so much filled in the time.
We found a little grocery store.
Had plain coffee, and much more.
Mix your own in a great big cup
You could hear the grinder mix it up.
In a huge casino called New York.
Riders in a big dipper were hauled,
There were all the skyscrapers to see,
And it included the Statue of Liberty.
The fountains dancing to the lights,
Another one of Vegas’s highlights.
Also the battle of the ships we saw,
With the pirates who knew no law.
NEW YORK HOTEL AND CASINO
The huge casinos had it all.
An aerial show and they didn’t fall.
There were malls inside you know,
The M G M casino had lions on show.
One had tigers that were white.
Aladdin’s casino looked like night.
And with the ceiling built so high.
They painted it just like the sky.
As you walked the strip I recall,
A cafe with a Harley in the wall
Also a huge bottle of coca cola.
And visitors sitting in a gondola.
These boats were in a hotels ground,
Men dressed up took them around.
Other hotels had ducks and things,
There were even some penguins.
HARLEY DAVIDSON CAFE
GONDOLAS OUTSIDE THE VENETIAN HOTEL
Fancy art adorned the walls.
Paintings and sculptures in the halls.
But we had to be on our way.
This was just a part of our holiday.
To travel around this scenic land.
We had booked a car beforehand.
We had to go and pick up this.
So we walked and found Avis.
Then back to the hotel we went.
It was close and convenient.
We loaded all our goods to go.
Cases, cameras, everything, you know.
Then we departed for the parks.
Looking at maps and making marks.
Having booked the places to stay.
We didn’t have to go far each day.
