Hope you are all enjoying a very Happy Memorial Weekend.
This photo was taken last night -- I was driving home from Pt. Loma, and kept seeing the gorgeous color in the sky. I found a place to park and enjoyed the sunset. This is the last bit of color in the sky. Enjoy!

Red Rock Canyon area, approximately 20 miles west of Las Vegas -- a great place to tour by car with areas where one can park and hike. So close to the neon signs of Las Vegas, it's a bit unreal to experience this quiet valley. An incredibly beautiful area.
I loved the signs we saw regarding the tortoise crossing. I looked hard, but never saw one. Maybe next trip! Check out the beautiful clouds in the sky.

|New sign to mark their location|
A group of very dedicated volunteers are working to save Las Vegas neon signs. . The museum boneyard is open by appointment only for now, so if you are going to be in the area, plan ahead & order your tickets on line. The signs have been saved from destruction as older buildings have been torn down. The volunteers who lead the tours are passionate and knowledgeable about the history of many of the signs.
This neon duck sign was rescued from The Ugly Duckling Car Sales, and is just one of many we learned about. More photos to come ...
I've also posted a few more on my flickr account so head on over there if you want to see more before I post here.

Another favorite was the ceiling in the Bellagio -- Dale Chihuly glass flowers, with the larger flowers maybe 5 feet in diameter.
The last photograph was taken of a closeup of his work outside his gallery in the Bellagio lobby. These are glass rods that are about 5' high. I liked this view because of the contrast with the shiny glass rods and the soft look of the flowers. Loved the colors too!

The flowers are spectacular and well worth a visit to the Safari Park. You'll be amazed at the variety of colors and sizes on display. Thanks go out to the wonderful volunteers who maintain the plants and greenhouse all year so we can view these beautiful flowers.
