We are currently vacationing in Las Vegas, NV visiting family. I have never been out West and love to see the landscape here.
We spent a day in the Valley of Fire and had a great time hiking:
(Can you see hubby??)
Then, we wanted to hike Mount Charlston. Unfortunately, our plans were cut short since we picked the day of a rare May snow storm...
Since we couldn't be out in nature, we headed to Freemont Street, i.e. old Las Vegas, and checked out some casinos.
And, of course, we had to see Hoover Dam. What an experience!!
This picture shows the new Hoover Dam bridge which is currently being built. It is going to ease the congestion on the dam when it opens this summer.
