The Adventure Continues!!

 We are leaving the Black Hills behind as we fly off to Las Vegas. The hills really do look black from the plane.
 I'm thinking this wouldn't be a good place to land...crash or parachute out of the plane:)


 And there's the strip the tall ones way out there!
 We stayed at Ballys and Paris was next door so we walked over there and decided to go to the top of the Eiffel Tower it is 1/2 the size of the real one. This the fountains at the Bellagio. We had a birds eye view!

 Another picture from the top of the tower.
 I noticed the green trees not much grass but the plants were so nice and green. It made ready for spring at home.
 The new bridge over the Hoover Dam. The next day we go over it twice!
 Greg,Julie,Paula and Gary. Sometimes we needed our jackets and then it would get warm and off they go.
 The turbines in the Hoover Dam. Yes we took the Dam tour!! My mistake we had the Deluxe Dam Tour. The guys seemed to enjoy it us girls just tagged along you know us, and all that mechanical  stuff. Yeah we'll just take your word for it. Water and magnets makes electricity for California!
 The Dam
 These little rodents were all over there. Don't feed them........

 This was at the Ethel M choco factory. Good chocolate yummy.

 We went downtown to  Fremont St. You probably won't believe me but that's Paula and  I. We just wanted to make a few bucks to put in the machines................Ok so it wasn't us but I had you looking for a second, and then you thought Julie isn't that tall LOL
 This is the light show down there. Something to see.
So that was the first 2 days in Vegas. We also went to a couple of shows and ate some good food.
Next stop the Grand Canyon................JMF
