Photos and Videos from Trip to Las Vegas, The Grand Canyon, and The Hoover Dam with Janet (August 4-9, 2015)

(Click on any of the thumbnails below to view the full-sized photo.)

General remark:  The photos below come from two devices, my camera and my iPhone.  The photos won't be in exact chronological order because in a lot of cases it was difficult to determine the sequence of photos between the two devices.

The flight on Tuesday, August 4, 2015 from Detroit to Chicago (Midway) ...

At Chicago Midway, Janet needed a cigarette, and we couldn't find one or a smoking area within the secure area of the airport.  So we walked out and took a break at the airport's bus station.  Cigarettes were $12.99/pack at a little shop near the airport exit, which is outrageous pricing.

Back inside the airport ...

Janet eating lunch (Thai food, I think) ...

We did shoot a video while watching the baggage handlers unload a plane.  A bag had fallen off the conveyor belt at the plane and we were speculating about its fate.  (As it worked out, the bag was spotted and picked up.)  The thumbnail below links to a video. (143,949,271 bytes)

The flight from Chicago Midway to Phoenix, and our first view of the Phoenix airport.  Near the end of the flight, even from the air, it was clear that we were not in Michigan.

Traffic was heavy getting out of Phoenix.  This is the traffic plus the 21st-century navigation device and the ancient navigation device as backup.

We stopped at a rest area and the signs warning of critters were funny.  Janet did point out that there were lots of snake holes near the bushes, which added some credibility to the signs.

We were advised by a Phoenix resident on the plane that we might want to drive through Sedona to see the beautiful rock formations.  It was very beautiful.

We also have a video of part of the drive.  The thumbnail below links to a video. (200,910,083 bytes)

We had dinner in Flagstaff, Arizona.  I wanted to eat at The Grand Canyon Cafe, but entered from the side or the back and accidentally had dinner at Martanne's.  The food was good (but artsy), and the art on the walls was very unusual.

We stayed at The L Motel.  I think the photo below is from the unused second room of our hotel suite.  This was not a 5-star hotel (LOL).

0400_dscn2184.jpg (4,838,009 bytes)

On Wednesday, August 5, 2015 we drove to The Grand Canyon (South Rim).  It was more impressive than I imagined it could be.  Prior to my visit, I mistakenly thought it was about 2,000 feet deep—it is actually about 5,000 feet deep.

In some of the photos, if you enlarge them, you can see Janet.  I stayed one place on the rim while Janet walked to another place and I took her picture.

Thanks to a gal tourist from Japan who took our picture together for us.

Later that day (Wednesday, August 5, 2015), we arrived in Las Vegas.  The photos below in Vegas span multiple days, up through Saturday, August 8, 2015.

This is Janet having her smoke and returning text messages in a casino parking lot shortly after we arrived ...

0600_img_3800.jpg (2,856,727 bytes)

The hotel where we spent a couple of days, The Oasis at Gold Spike, was just a block or so from The Heart Attack Grill.  Janet had seen through the window that the waitresses were wearing nurse's uniforms and the customers were dressed in hospital gowns (or something like that), and was curious what the place was (regrettably, we never went).  This is a poster near a bus stop.

0600_img_3805.jpg (3,340,343 bytes)

We did see a billboard for The United Church of Bacon.  It ends up that this is a statement of some sort by the magicians Penn and Teller.

By Thursday, August 6, 2015, we needed to do laundry.  These are pics from a 24-hour laundromat we were able to find.

Breakfast at The Oasis at Gold Spike on ...

While driving around Vegas, we did see several billboards for personal injury attorneys.  I thought the In a wreck?  Need a check? tagline was quite clever.

While at The Oasis at Gold Spike, I watched a partial episode of Blue Bloods.  I found the show to be very watchable.  I advised my mom of this, as she is a huge fan of the show.

0600_img_3855.jpg (1,018,083 bytes)

On Friday, August 7, 2015 we went to see the Kriss Angel: Believe show at The Luxor.  These are photos from The Luxor.  My impression of the show is that I have no idea in the world how they did what they did.  I'm sure it was a mixture of technology, lighting, and diversion.  It was pretty amazing.

On the morning of Thursday, August 6, 2015 we went to see The Hoover Dam.  The tour and the materials given out by the government were quite amazing.  I had no idea that the primary purpose of the dam was to "tame" the Colorado river and level out the downstream water flow to prevent floods and drought, or that Lake Mead was the largest manmade water reservoir.  I also find it amazing that one could just effectively "cork" a river like that.

The drive to the dam was interesting, including a casino and hotel named after the dam ...

These are photos from the parking area and exterior of the dam.  The parking structure is quite amazing, as they have sculpted it (i.e. poured a very unusual parking deck) to fit among the rock formations.

Photos from the tour.  The power generation turbines were amazing—each one was rated for over 100 megawatts and in total The Hoover Dam is a 1 gigawatt+ power generation facility.  I did not know you could get so much power from one river.

We did have some greenscreen tourist photos done at The Hoover Dam ...

On Saturday, August 8, 2015, we went to the Star Trek Convention.  It was pretty amazing to listen to Joan Collins and William Shatner speak.  I also find it humorous that the NASA Federal Credit Union will soon offer Star Trek themed credit cards.
