Thanksgiving in Vegas - Part II

The second part of our Las Vegas vacation involved explorations with the Weber parents. Once again, some of this has overlapped with explorations with the Ausema parents. Here are some of the highlights:

  • Thanksgiving morning exploration of Red Rock Canyon NCA (picture above) which included seeing a ringtail cat and a wild burro.

  • Afternoon Thanksgiving feast with 13 people at Susanna's parents' cozy home.

  • Climb of Lone Mountain, a rocky, rugged peak right next to Vegas.

  • An awesome hike into the steep, cool walls of Pine Creek Canyon.

  • Swimming in the community pool and playing mini golf
