MGM Grand Hotel/Casino – Las Vegas, Nevada

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada. My scheduled departure date is Friday, February 13th.

Mary continues to be overwhelmed with personal business. I am now not expecting to see her again until I arrive at her home in Murphys, California about the third week in April. It’s just the way things are and we just have to deal with it.

I’ve come to Las Vegas, Nevada several times over the years and have quite thoroughly explored the area. Rather than go back to these various places and re-create the wheel, (unless I do something different and unusual) I’m electing to republish some of my earlier blog entries.

MGM Grand Hotel/Casino – Las Vegas, Nevada

Yesterday Mary and I spent a couple of hours wandering around the MGM Grand Hotel/Casino at the corner of Las Vegas Boulevard (“The Strip”) and Tropicana in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The purpose of our visit was two-fold. First, we have tickets for Cirque De Soleil – Ka, next Tuesday evening and we wanted to get a general feel for the layout, parking, etc…rather than a first-time visit at night.

The second reason was to see the Lion Habitat with live lions behind thick glass in the casino area. The photography conditions were terrible. First lots of people, then trying to shoot the lions behind glass with lots of reflections and finally the casino was very dark. The following photos are the best I could do under these conditions…

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!

On October 27, 2012, I created a two-minute video titled America The Beautiful. The music America The Beautiful is by Christopher W. French. The photos, which I randomly selected, are from the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, Washington and West Virginia (not shown in that order)…are mine. Yup, That’s me standing in front of the Post Office in Luckenbach, Texas…Y’all!
