Viva Las Vegas! Sin City looks like an average city by daylight.

On that Thursday, I didn’t feel well when I woke up with a neck ache. I took an Ibuprofen and made sure I stayed hydrated throughout the day. But I still could not get rid of it. Later in the day it turned into a headache. We think, the higher elevation driving through California and Nevada played a part in it. Hoover Dam was planned in. I told Kevin, I can’t make it all the way up the stairs to stand on the bridge and look down Hoover Dam. “How about we cross it and find a parking spot on the other side? I don’t mind seeing it from the backside. It still will be impressive”, I suggested. Said, done. After looking at the Hoover Dam and parts of Lake Mead/Colorado River, capturing some photos and a potty break, we found out we had to cross the dam again. The road to the dam in Arizona was closed. So, we had back track to get to Highway 93. Driving through Arizona, I grabbed my neck pillow and took a nap for most of the way to Williams, AZ. I was glad, when I could stretch out and sleep in the motel bed. Kevin, Katelynn and Sara went for a walk and had dinner in that small Western-style town.

Kevin, the girls and I had a wonderful vacation in California, in the last week of 2017. We went to the Pacific coast, saw family in Los Angeles, went to Disneyland in Anaheim, and checked out Hoover Dam, before we went to the Grand Canyon. Sara has caught up with Katelynn: they both have seen 31 US-states in total.

After New Year, I will start writing blogs about our trip to California. Stay tuned! Until then …

Happy New Year!Β
