The North Migration continues

Our official migration to the Great White North is underway.  Today we plan to put another hundred miles or so behind us.  We don't want to get in a big hurry because we don't want to catch up to any cold weather.  So today we will head for Las Vegas.  This will be the 7th trip to Las Vegas for Sue and I and we hardly ever gamble.  The lights of the strip tend to draw you in just like the mountains do, or a bonfire does.  We love to visit there.

The highway heads up to about 3800 ft. and then back down to about 1200 ft. near Las Vegas.  All of the climbs and descents are quite long and gentle so it is a nice drive through the hills.

When we rounded the corner at Boulder City we got our first look at Lake Mead.  The colour of the water was a rich blue.

We still have our Federal pass which gets us into the Lake Mead Recreation Area to camp, as well as use of the dump and water at Canyon Campground, which isn't far from Government Wash where we will be camping.  So that was our first stop before heading out to find a place to park.

If you remember, Kyra came here a couple days ahead of us, and she has a spot for all of us up above the lake.  The road seems a little smoother than it was last year.

We got all set up just in time for Happy hour.  That is something we don't often miss!!!!

This is the view from our window today:
