To return to the trip narrative, before Vegas we stayed for 5 days in Kanab, Utah, which is just over the border from Arizona. This was an AirBnB trial and it was perfect. Our host was as nice as anyone could ask, and his house was charming and beautifully decorated. He had gorgeous roses out front that would be the envy of any gardener, and hummingbird feeders for the black-chinned hummingbirds that were constant visitors. We watched the male staking his territory, calling females and doing aerial acrobatics.
