Southwest Vacation: Red Rock Canyon & Hoover Dam

18 Sep

Sunday was the only day we got to sleep in on the whole trip, and our big touristy day with trips to Red Rock Canyon and Hoover Dam.

The rock formations were pretty darn cool!

Within 10min of being on the trails Wally was scouting for shade, but he paused long enough to take some kingly photos

The views were pretty spectacular! I had expected some wave canyons, but they must have been off the beaten path

Definitely not a desert dog, we kept him away from cactus!

While Wally hung out in the A/C cooled hotel room, we went to the Hoover Dam

I drank the Dam water

Legend has it you'll have good luck in the casino if you rub all the toes on both statues. We never actually gambled, so we can't promise it works!

For dinner we went to Shibuya, the best Japanese restaurant we've ever been to. Everything was delicious, but the sushi and the Wagyu skirt steak were amazing!

Sunday was capped off with a trip to the Bellagio fountains. I loved all the Sinatra songs
