Las Vegas

After the desolate wilderness of Death Valley, two nights in Las Vegas was something. Christopher wanted to go to Las Vegas to see the sites. I mean after seeing the real Venice, New York, and Paris, it's only natural to want to see the copies in the middle of the desert, right?

On our way in to town we stopped at Hover Dam. Even today, 70 years after its construction, it is an awe inspiring sight. There were thunderstorms passing through so we got to see lightning, rain, and even a rainbow while we were there. It is worth the trip to see.

We parked the motorhome in the RV park at Circus Circus and began exploring. In the two days we were there we saw almost the entire strip as well as the light show downtown on Fremont Street. Christopher, not surprisingly, loved the view from the top of the Stratosphere.

Las Vegas needs to be seen, but we are in no hurry to get back.
