Our friends Claude & Richard met us in Las Vegas to begin a SouthWest vacation.
We loved the Chihuly glass
The Bellagio was celebrating the year of the Rat
The shark tank/pool at the Golden Nugget was a hit
As was the Neon Museum's downtown display
We stopped at Hoover Dam
Admired the Deco sculptures
And were shocked by how low the water was in Lake Mead - about 100 feet (33 meters) down from the original level indicated by the white rock.
We arrived at the Grand Canyon late in the afternoon
I think it's impossible to take a bad picture of the Grand Canyon
Did I mention that it was about 3 degrees F (-16 C) when we were there?
We stopped at Waputki monument
The Waputki ruins were very impressive
Claude found a store named for him in Sedona
We stopped at this church in Sedona
All too soon we were back home in San Diego
We visited some San Diego celebrities before Claude & Richard flew back east
