     The background of this page is the wallpaper of the hotel we stayed at in Vegas.  As you may guess, it was not . . . shall we say . . . high class.  We had called ahead and reserved the room.  We didn't arrive until 1:30 (Which is why the last update didn't have this stuff.)  We uploaded the update for Day 4 and went to "The Strip."

     We drove towards the lights and pretty quick we were in the strip.  We took a bunch of pictures from the car (see left) and we took some great panoramic pictures which I will post later.  Dodi had the great idea of going to the top of a hotel to get some aireal pictures such as the one on the right.  By the time we were done taking pictures it was really late (early?) - 3:30am!  We dragged our butts back to our hotel and went to sleep.  We got up at 11:00 and headed to the Grand Canyon.

We were awed by the SIZE of the Canyon, but by that time we had been driving for quite a while after not getting a lot of sleep.  We took a bunch of pictures and headed back into town to eat.
