Quiet Las Vegas Weekend
Saturday, I kitted up for a bike ride. Stopped in a bike shop to get map(s). Very nice new free maps were available for the Southern Nevada and Henderson, NV. Grabbed the hybrid out of the van and ready for a bike ride on the Pittman Wash Trail in Henderson. Alas, I had 2 broken spokes on the rear wheel.
Had dinner at the hotel cafe - decent order of spaghetti and meatballs. Champagne brunch at the hotels Grand buffet.
Met up with a couple guys from my Army Unit for lunch. Was a little too much food, but good food at BJ's with a pint of beer. Great to see and visit with Nick and Alex (see photo).
The afternoon/evening was spend napping and working on photos from the trip. Headed back towards Albuquerque about daybreak.
Stopped about 15 miles South of Hoover Dam to take a couple photos of the Colorado River downstream from the dam. Late lunch in Flagstaff. Was just getting dark as we got off I-40, heading to my house.
