I'm thinking about a trip to the surounding are of Las Vegas in Jan. Would like to see as much as possible in about four days, like Death Valley, Valley of Fire, Grand Canyon, Zion NP etc. Can anyone tell me what kind of temps to expect and the weather in general? What else should I put on my list within 200 mile radius of Vegas. Not interested in Vegas (BTDT) it's just a flyin point, and where I plan to rent a Wing. Thanks for any info.

Bash.

Bash,

If you would like a change, you could always drop by my place. We could go ice fishing, do a little skiing on the roads behind a car and maybe get a little snow shoe time in.

Let me know...LOL

Bulldog, that sounds like a plan! I was just thinking about something a wee bit warmer this year for a change, but thatks for the offer.

I go to Vegas a lot, but haven't visited those areas. However, as far as weather, you can expect cooler to cold temperatures...often very windy. Take warm clothes for riding. I've even seen snow flurries up there in December and January. Should be able to find high and low averages on the weather forecast links available on the Internet. Looking for a nice play to stay in Vegas, but off the Strip - and a good place to start your ride from - I suggest the Suncoast Hotel and Casino on the east/northeast side.

Bash,
Death Valley can be quite temperate during that time and it's a good time to visit. The other locations you mentioned can be quite cold; down into the 20s. Still the chance of rain is small and this can be a good trip if you are properly attired.

Let me know your planned travel dates and I'll meet you for lunch in Death Valley.
