So I’m doing some late night packing for my upcoming trip to Zion National Park and Las Vegas this weekend. I’m planning to do two days of canyoneering, camp out for a couple nights, and get strangers to capture amazing photos of me in beautiful locations like this:
After conquering every canyon known to gnomekind, I plan to top off my journey with some drunk time by the pool and throwing away my life’s earnings at the blackjack tables.
As with all of my journeys, I seek out famous gnome to visit and use my networking skills to make best friends with them. Las Vegas artist, Jesse Smigel, has assisted a nine-foot gnome with setting up his home behind an empty arts factory! Jesse’s work of art (a.k.a. huge nameless gnome’s new residence) is called “Gnot the Proper Gnomenclature”.
Gnot bad, if I do say so myself. Check it out!
“I’m hoping people will see it from afar and say, ‘Is that a goddamn garden gnome?’” Smigel says.
Now THIS is a gnome I have GOT to meet! I have submitted an appointment request with him for Sunday afternoon and am anxiously awaiting my confirmation email.
To be continued….

Did we ever get to meet? How did I miss this e-mail?
No, unfortunately we have yet to cross paths! How is the Vegas gnome doing? What’s he up to these days? Does he have any brothers or cousins lurking around in other places? Right now me and a couple of the other gnomies are sitting a Wyoming campground staring at Devil’s Tower and waiting for the rain to let up. Sigh. Hope to hear from you soon!
