We were in Las Vegas with Bill and Karen. We stay at the Thousand Trails Park on Boulder Blvd. The guys played pool their favorite place being Best Billiards. Tonight we were watching Max play.

We found out there is a Wetlands area in Henderson so we took a morning and drove out there to look it over. We drove around the area with one of the rangers.

I took an afternoon and joined my nephew Dylan and his friend Jamie on a hike at the Red Rock State Park. He took us up Ice Box Canyon. The trail and climb was amazing. We didn’t get clear to the box canyon because of the sun going down.

Some of the rocks we climbed over.

We are in the shadows.


Another trip we drove up to Mesquite to visit with Linda and Larry at their condo. Had great Bloody Mary’s by the pool and she fixed a wonderful lunch.

This is the view from their place.
