journey to Las Vegas included a detour through Death Valley. I entered
via this road, drove through scrub
desert, with "Forests" of Cacti. Here
I am with a view of the first valley, and a gorge in the background.
If you look carefully, you can see these Sand
Dunes in the background. The road out of the other
valley was very long, and visible for miles.
startling aspect of Death Valley,
is not just the barrenness, but the geology. These cliffs show how
the Earth's crust must have moved. This is a view of the Death
Valley floor, and the Sand
Dunes at the bottom of Death Valley. There were no more pictures
due to camera problems.
standard view of Las Vagus! First we went to Paris!
Here I lost, and Jean won! No pictures from this night, since I
needed to work out how to take pictures without flash.
day, we went to Caesar's Palace, where we had a lovely meal. Here's
me, and here's Jean
outside. Again, we played Black
Jack, and again, Jean won
and I lost! We came back via Bellagio's,
where there is a wonderful Water Ballet. I have video, but it is
40 mB, and I have decided not to post it.
my last night, I managed to see Celine Dion's show. It was fantastic.
It is a fully live production, using light and projection in a wonderful
way. You are transported into a complete fantasy world. I love Celine's
music, but if you are not a fan, you may not enjoy it so much.
stayed in the Hawthorn Suites,
which is a really good place to stay, and is close to the strip,
and the MGM Sudios Hotel and Casino.
