Caesar's Palace (Las Vegas)

From a trip a few months ago, here are some shots of the famous Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas.
It's definitely luxurious with lots of water features.
I love the curved escalators - you don't see these every day.
Of course there's lots of shopping for those so inclined.

Hawaii 1997 Revisited (4)

The overlook where I took this photo on the Big Island of Hawaii is closed as there's lava in the crater these days.

Above the Clouds

When we got to the top of Mount Herman, it was amazing to have a sea of clouds below us.
Morning clouds are fairly rare in this part of the world, so this was an unexpected pleasure.
The dogs and I loved this hike, and I thought these photos would be perfect for Skywatch Friday, photos from the sky!

Mount Herman Road

I recently went for a hike up a nearby mountain, Mount Herman. To get to the trailhead you take a dirt road along the side of the mountain, and it started out foggy.
But I climbed out of the clouds, and looking back it was a lovely sight.
This shot more clearly shows you the road where I had been driving a few minutes before.
The trail up the mountain is quite steep in places.
In fact at times it doesn't seem like a trail at all!
Come back in a couple of days and I'll show you some photos from the top. In the meantime visit Our World Tuesday for lots of other views of our incredible world.

Aria, Las Vegas

These photos are from a few months ago when we took a short trip to Vegas. Here's the Aria hotel where we stayed. First, looking out the main entrance.
One of the advertising signs.
Lots of glass...
...and I'm bet that the signs are LED rather than neon.

Textbook Severe Thunderstorm

I was glad this severe thunderstorm passed to our south a few days ago, not over us, as it was dropping tennis-ball sized hail as I took this photo.
