Thursday, May 3 - Viva Las Vegas

Today was a highlight for everyone - even Nigel - the Grand Canyon. It is a spectacular site that everyone enjoyed. It was a sucessful visit with many pictures and no one fell over the edge :)

After the Grand Canyon, we were on a straight shot for the city lights of Las Vegas. A short stop was required for lunch at the Road Kill Cafe along historic Route 66. After a colorful lunch ("Too Slow Doe" is a BBQ beef sandwich) we were on our way to Sin City.
Next was a great drive over the Hoover Dam, we arrived about 7 PM (those pesky time zones keep surprising us) and enjoyed a few beers at the camground before hitting the famous Strip. Although we were all tired from a day of driving, we managed to visit Bally's, Paris, and Bellagio before calling it a night. Vegas definitely needs a return visit - perhaps the next vacation?
