Thawing out in Las Vegas

As I was lying in bed last night trying to fall asleep with the temperature outside in the 20s (it isn’t safe to fall asleep with my propane heater on) with several layers of clothing on me, a wool hat on my head and a thick scarf around my neck I thought to myself “I need to go somewhere warmer” so now I am in shorts and a t-shirt in Las Vegas, which was just a four hour drive from Flagstaff. I love that I can just do that. I didn’t want to go too far away since meeting up with friends back in Flagstaff the beginning of June. Las Vegas is not too hot yet and there are lots of outdoor areas surrounding Las Vegas that I want to explore like Red Rock Canyon and Lake Mead. I stopped at some scenic overlooks of Lake Mead on the way here (pictures below) and am looking forward to going there. Right now I am in a parking lot adjacent to one of the hotel/casinos that allows free overnight parking. The area looks a bit sketchy but I am surrounded by five RVs and four camper vans so I feel comfortable staying the night plus the hustle and bustle of the strip with lots of people walking by is just steps away from my van (thank goodness for my sound machine app). I am not into partying it up at the nightclubs but I am into going to some of the attractions here and maybe even seeing a Cirque du Soleil show, which I really enjoyed the last time I was here 🌻IMG_6966IMG_6968
