Carson City to Las Vagas

Las Vegas, United States

Wow! We left the motel at 7 this morning and headed toward Las Vegas. The terrain changes right away. Very dry and lots of sage Brush. After while we saw some strange little trees and then suddenly they were all over. Then they were gone. It changed quickly. There were always mountains. Most of the time we were completely surrounded by mountains but they sure weren't like the mountains in Oregon! The got dryer and dryer and more barren. Then colors. Strips of color or chunks of color or mountains of color. Mostly brown, black, white, red, yellow and a little green. The rocks making the mountains came up vertically or horizontally or sometimes in a swirl. It was amazing and pretty interesting. Not something I would choose to live in but I'm glad we got to see it.

Now we are in Las Vegas. Talk about overwhelmed! This is strange but I honestly thought Vegas was a smallish town with lots of gambling. A place people came to gamble and then go home. It's huge! Rows and rows and rows of homes. Highways all over and criss crossing. The road ways are decorated pretty. The trees are kind of cool looking. The traffic is bananas and the city is very dark feeling. In fact Navada feels dark. Every town had a casino, cash place, pawn shop and brothel. Vegas has them all in abundance. I have no desire to go out into it. Just want to stay here and then leave in the morning.

Honey didn't like her perch so much today. She shook and tried to get onto my shoulder and wanted to jump off in any direction. Finally Dad thought of putting her bed up there and that really helped a lot! Poor little dog. I think she just isn't very stable up there. She sure does like the motels though!

I have pictures but I'll put them on later. There aren't many and they aren't exciting. Oh well. Hope you had a good day.

Love you

Wow. That sounds like an interesting day. From your description, I don't think Nevada is a place that I would look into moving to in the near future.... or ever for that matter. :) But, I am glad you got to see it too. Did you see the strip? I bet that would be difficult with traffic being horrible. Well, you get to see the Grand Canyon tomorrow and that will be good. :) I love your blogs.
