Las Vegas

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:

Then, we wanted to hike Mount Charlston. Unfortunately, our plans were cut short since we picked the day of a rare May snow storm...001 Mt Charlston

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!!
