Vega's Baby!!!


What a wonderful vacation. 4 nights in Vega's! Our first time. We're not gambler's, but not to worry. There is so much to see that we'll go back again. No doubt!
We took a flight and copter ride thru the Grand Canyon. What a thriller! I've never flown in a helicopter before. When I said the the *cough* young pilot that this must be the Best job ever...he said "Oh it's easy". He flew us across the desert floor until he reached the edge of the Grand Canyon. Then...over the edge we went. Wheeee! It was Great!
Then we also took a driving trip through the Valley of Fire. Amazing red rock formations and mountains. Simply amazing. I could of done that every day! The rough floor and jagged walls of the park contain brilliant formations of eroded sandstone and sand dunes more than 150 million years old.

Prehistoric users of the Valley of Fire included the Ancient Pueblo Peoples, also known as the Anasazi, who were farmers from the nearby fertile Moapa Valley. The span of approximate occupation has been dated from 300 B.C. to A.D. 1150. Fine examples of rock art left by these ancient peoples can be found at several sites within the park. These are called Petroglyphs.

Amazing stuff. It's great being on vacation =)

Those are the two things I want to do when I get a chance to go back to Vegas! We only had time for Red Rocks and Mount Charleston.
