The Sunrise was well worth the early morning as it rose between two peaks on the Canyon. After several photos we walked along the rim of the canyon and viewed the canyon from the other lookout points on route and then went for food.

We checked out of the hotel at 9am and then drove west along the I-40. We stopped at the Hover Dam and walked along it and took photo’s of the dam and Lake Mead, we also got some food in the Café too.

The Hover Dam is an amazing site, I had never seen the water level so low before as it was about 30 feet lower than anytime I had previously been there.

After an hour long stop we carried on til we reached Las Vegas. We checked into the Imperial Palace on the strip which is going to be our home for the next 7 days. I thought I’d best check out the casino so proceeded straight to the Black Jack tables. A couple of hours later I grabbed Jill and we walked along the strip to Treasure Island and went to Kahunaville for Dinner. We had the biggest cocktails I had ever seen let alone drank. Mine seemed to have it’s on smoke machine.

After Dinner we walked over to the Wynn and looked around as this is the newest casino to be built on the strip. Jill and I hung around and got some free bottles of Corona before heading back to our hotel for the night.
