Highway 93 over Hoover dam is closed to trucks and RV's. SO, we took the alternate through Laughlin, NV. and hooked up with highway 95 to Vegas. You guessed it Severe inclines up and down. Nothing to it by now.

View from top of highway looking down on Bullhead City, AZ. and Laughlin NV.

As usual the views are breathtaking. Judy and yours truley discussed the fact we were going to hopefully get to the bottom with no suprises. These grades have run-a-way slots filled with gravel to hopefully slow any runaways. We didn't appreciate the crosses and flowers that probably indicated a problem at some time.

This is a great setting just north of the bridge from Bullhead city AZ. to Laughlin NV.  (oh, we are continuing up and over those mountains in the background.)

I don't advise taking the I-215, but we did, So what's new?

Holiday RV park, near Sam's Town in Vegas

This is the RV Park our friends from Lucas,county Iowa (Zelma and Kenny Miller) reside at every winter.
Our six week tour was to see them before they stop their trips as well as to continue on to Yuma , AZ to visit some of our Adventureland friends.

Kenny and Zelma were great tour guides in Vegas. When we were out for the day or evening it was just like being back in Lucas county at Raliegh World but with a lot more lights. We had a great time!!!!
