Wednesday - Las Vegas and Grand Canyon
Up at 5.00am for a 6.00am pick up.
off to the grand canyon. helicopter was not scary at all, so I must be getting tougher.
amazing, hoover dam, canyon the whole deal. If I had my time again, I would book a different trip that lands in the canyon. it would take you further. and under the rim. but still amazing and incomprehensable the size of it. 277 miled long and up to 18 miles wide in some places. photos don't do it justice.
not able to upload photos at the moment on this site, but i'll try again.
back for brekky and then a group meeting. Watsons are going to the outlets today. and everyone else is coming too. We managed a Stretch Hummer limo to take us there. works out just as cheap as 3 cabs when you have 13 people. very cool.
shopped al day and got some good bargains, and probably some stuff we don't need either. Limo back to the hotel by 4.00pm and then a couple of quiet drinks and watched the fountain.
the Cosmopolitan Casino - directly over the road - opened last night. we thought there would be fire works and everything, but a real anti-climax. later at night the band were so loud they could have been in our room, but too tired to care.
went through Paris and Bally's last night so exploring more today. try and find the venetian.
very early night! more tomorrow
