|Hoover Dam in Black Rock Canyon|
|Hoover Dam, The Colorado River.|
|Hoover Dam, the channel to Lake Mead where the water level is down 14%.|

Sorry for the glare on the window, but how bleak and desolate can one get? Radically different from Michigan.
|Turn left at the next light. The school bus was the only bit of saturated color.|
|Back to civilization. a glimpse of .the Bellagio, a grand hotel on the strip" |
where we first met up with our kids several visits ago.
While most people gravitate to the Las Vegas strip for the lights, the gambling, spectacular dining and entertainment, we had done that in previous years. This trip, we wanted to distance ourselves from the heavy traffic and hoop-la. The JW Marriott, located off the strip in Summerlin on fifty some odd acres that included a golf course, was a good choice. If you go, stay in the Palm Tower. Closest to the pool and restaurants, it offers less walking than the Spa Tower. (Both towers at the JW are short, only six floors high. Peanuts compared to the skyscrapers on the strip), nevertheless take your Pumas and leave the stilettos.
