Welcome to Vegas?
So my welcome to Vegas wasn't the best. 45 minutes sitting on the tarmack waiting to get a gate at the airport (boy did I have to pee!), luggage that took forever to get (and they kept changing the location it was supposed to come from), obnoxiously loud commercials blaring from large TV's, someone puked at the rent-a-car place, and it was about 4 a.m. (my time) before I slept.
But today's a new day and I got to see Mt. Charleston (pictured from a stock photo I found) in it's full glory. Spectacular! That's the best word I can think of to describe it. And the best part? The leaves were changing colors! (I'll have great photos later!) We did a short hike - whew! - climbing mountains is NOT easy. And I got to see joshua trees...how cool is that? Anyways, tonight we are having dinner with our host Mike and his friend Kim somewhere on the strip in the heart of Vegas. Oh, and the humidity this afternoon? 8%! So it's 95, but the feels like temperature is less.
Well, that's all for now...off to my next adventure.
Oh and Aaron, the faces weren't at this mountain either!
