Viva Las Vegas!
(picture above taken from Wikipedia)
On our 4th (of 5) day, we rented a car and drove to nearby Hoover Dam. The pictures we took don't do it justice as it still looks small, but believe me, looking down at the downstream side of the dam made the hair on the back of my neck stiffer than a porcupine's quill. And though they say the water level's down in recent years (you can see the water level in the pictures) the dam still holds plenty; with the lake at highest level, 35.2 cubic kilometers. Just being there made me want to pee every 5 minutes. It was simply breathtaking, and awe-inspiring, what man is capable of doing. I was somewhat disappointed though, that we didn't get to see Bumblebee. The guide I asked had no clue what I was talking about when I asked him where they kept him, or Megatron. He must be new. Also spent some time at the Red Rock canyon, 20 mins away from LV. Did some hiking around the breathtaking rock formations there.
Overall, it was a great trip, and it was nice to get away from all the white stuff here we call snow. To look at more pictures, check out my online album.
