Monday, August 16, 2010 : Death Valley, Hoover Dam, Las Vegas

 

roadmap-us mark-5-5-us Death Valley again, with its mineral background, then the borderlands of California and Nevada, another dream-like setting.
attractions-us mark-4-5-us Zabriskie Point, Dante's View, Hoover Dam (too bad we made it too late to go to the visitor center), all make the miles worthwhile. Las Vegas, both Tinseltown and Sin City, we'll leave it to fans.
weather-us mark-5-5-us Dream-like weather !
hotel-us mark-2-5-us Las Vegas Travelodge is no more than average, but it's very conveniently located on the Strip. The breakfast is forgettable. And I had to unplug the lavatory by myself.

We'll remember that day more for its beautiful sourroundings than for its hotel.
  favorite-us Amargosa, at the exit of Death Valley, a minuscule village that time seems to have forgotten in a western setting.
