Scenes from around Boulder City

After Zion we drove southwest over to Nevada to scout around Boulder City for a couple days. We'll be doing the Desert Winds expedition race there later this month, and it was nice to get to know the area a bit.

On the way into Vegas, John scored a few tie-down straps:

In our RV park, the view from the side door toward Lake Mead:

Mandalay Bay!

We rented a canoe to see a small part of Lake Mohave - very pretty:

Refreshment on a very hot (110 degree) day:

Overlooking Lake Mohave on a bike ride:

A great little store just east of Nelson - part of the movie "3000 Miles to Graceland" was filmed here:

A short trek in the desert:

With help from a local, we found a fun little natural bridge:

Climbing around on the bridge:

Testing out some interesting footwear (I'm going to stick with gaiters for the race instead):

A huge solar array in the desert:

A visit to Hoover Dam:

The new Hoover Dam bridge (almost open) and the High Scaler sculpture:

Biking up to the radio towers above Bootleg Canyon:

That's it! I'm caught up on blogging.

John and I will be doing the Lone Star Rogaine in Texas this weekend, looking forward to it.

Later y'all!
