Day 5 – Las Vegas NV to Flagstaff AZ

Our car wasn’t ready yesterday, so we had to wait in Las Vegas until 2 p.m. today to pick up our car.  I wanted to do some shopping and Mark wanted to check out the old downtown Las Vegas strip but unfortunately, at 930 a.m. there isn’t much to see in the old part of […]

Day 4 – Las Vegas Nevada
