I'm planning an overnight stay at SPW (I hope) Dec 21-22. I fly into Vegas from Canada) and should be on the road by about 5-5.30 pm, proceeding directly to SPW with only a short grocery stop.
From what I gather most of the drive will be in darkness. Is that a problem? I'm an experienced driver, but not desert driving at night. I've read stories of deer or elk jumping up on the highway, giant porcipines, etc.
Any advice about desert driving at night in the winter will be appreciated.
Oh, and a big thanks to everyone who contributes here. I read the "suggested day trips" posts and they were a huge help to planning my time. Looking forward to my visit.
