Ultimate Road Trip - Las Vegas

We were on the last leg of our road trip to Las Vegas where we will settle until mid February.

We chose the breakfast buffet at the Hualapai Resort where we spent the night. It was a beautiful chilly morning as we strolled to breakfast.
 

 More bears!

This was our view from the dining room as we ate breakfast. More of the female elks came to join this group, we didn't see any bulls.

Time to pack up and do the last leg of this journey, an easy 120 miles to Las Vegas with a photo stop in Kingman. We realized as we drove through the downtown area of Kingman that we had been here before.



On our way!

The landscape is not the same as Arizona or the previous states we have driven through. It is much more rocky and arid looking.






We pass through Bullhead City just before the Nevada state line. The casinos loom in the middle of nowhere.

 This casino is sonamed as it is near the state lines of California, Nevada and Arizona.

This section of highway was dedicated to various heroes of wars.


As we enter the town of Henderson we realize we can see the Strip in the distance.


A view of New York New York as we drive in.

It was a really quick check in. I asked the clerk if there was a time difference to Arizona and he said no, it is 1PM. 





We settled in and realized there was a time difference and we had gained another hour, so three hour time difference from home.

We walked out to dinner, off the Strip and about ten minutes away to a highly recommended Italian restaurant across from the Hard Rock Casino.

We didn't take any photos of our dinner but we had:
Porcini Pappardelle con Ragu di Cinghiale -Long wide porcini pasta, wild boar meat sauce
and:
Vitello Piccata - Veal scaloppini, lemon, white wine, capers served with starch & vegetable of the day
