We woke to another beautiful day, packed up, and headed south.
Up the “hill”:
Down the “hill”:
I kept looking but didn’t see any:
Las Vegas in the distance:
We passed thru south Las Vegas - sheesh - so much traffic!
We arrived at the Boulder City Elks and were greeted by our friends Ann and Roy (who we last saw in June in West Yellowstone). A few minutes later, Geri and John pulled in next to us.
After setting up and having lunch, we spent the afternoon getting caught up. Late afternoon, we moved to the Elks lounge where we had a great time. This is really nice lodge!

This morning we said our “see ya later” to Geri and John - .. we will see them again soon.
Ann, Roy, Andy, and I decided to take a walk into downtown Boulder City.
Boulder City was originally built in 1931 as housing for workers who were building Hoover Dam. It has an interesting history - see the links below:
Another tidbit: It is only one of two cities in Nevada that prohibit gambling.
Sculptures around the town:
Ann and Roy invited us over to dinner - YUM. A delicious meal and a great time. Thank you Ann and Roy. We will see you in January.
I am still working on getting caught up with the blog and I promise not to do this again.
Tomorrow we are heading to Mesa so stay tuned.
