Today, our last day in Vegas, we drove to Lake Mead and took the scenic drive around the Nevada part of the lake. Lake Mead is bordered by Nevada and Arizona. It was pretty hot today also, but the weather man says a storm front is coming thru tomorrow and the temps will drop. We will be heading north, to Utah, so we may even find ourselves back in winter clothing. We'll make one more visit to Sam's Town casino tonight. Last night, I won $108 on a Star Wars slot machine!
