Viva Las Vegas

At the entrance of the Mirage

Our room was about half way up and under the left side "The"

Great location as we could see the hourly volcano eruption yet far enough up to not be bothered by the sounds of it or the traffic on the strip

Enjoyed the casino glitz

The flowers in the lobby

Checking out the neighbourhood

The Venetian
The canal

On the overpass to Treasure Island

Bob wins some wild blue pennies

Riding the tram from Treasure Island back to the Mirage

Sun setting on the strip

Mirage reflections due to the blackened window glass causing distortions

McCarren airport @ 80ยบ where we caught a ride with a woman pilot; a first for us!

This was the reason we didn't get off the ground at Bellingham, Wa airport in February. What a difference 2 months makes!
All in all a fun trip, great hotel with the BEST buffet and more than enough to see and do a mere fraction of what was available.
