Skirting Vegas

After Zion, I moved on to the Henderson, NV Elks lodge, where there were several WINs parked. Having friends wherever you go sure is great.


I had a great view of Vegas, although it was 20 miles away. There was even fresh show on the mountains.


We had daily Happy Hours --


And Tom made us a "Depression Dinner," in honor of the economy. Beans, rice, and sausage.


From there I moved to the WIN gathering at Boulder Beach, one of the Lake Mead Recreation Areas. The campground is beautiful, with lots of palm trees, eucalyptus trees, and flowering oleander. You can barely see the lake in the picture through the awning.


Since it was full moon, some of the group did a moonlight paddle.


Wow, that moon was really bright!


It made the carp go a little crazy.

Diana, I just love the Full Moon PIC and the Devil Carp PIC.

Don't you think the Depression Dinner should have foregone the Sausage in the interest of authenticity? :~)
