Christmas in Vegas

We spent a wonderful week at Christmas in Las Vegas!  During the time, we hiked in Red Rock Canyon, saw Hoover Dam (and walked across the adjacent bridge in to Arizona), explored Lake Mead NRA, went to see the movie "The Hobbit," climbed Lone Mountain (Jasper's first mountain ascent!) and visited a really interesting bird viewing refuge.  The biggest excitement at the bird refuge was seeing two coyotes!  We also saw lots of family and spent lots of great time together.
