Goofing around in Las Vegas

Well, we have been to one buffet, rode around some, did a little gambling, got our mail, did our taxes, cleaned up and relaxed and have been enjoying the wonderful weather here. Gerald did a couple of repair jobs on the motorhome, so our chores are done. We will be here till April 5.

Glenda took this picture today when we were goofing around.

Yesterday was Marquis' birthday. She is 4 years old. We had a fun day and she got special treats all day.

This is a cactus I bought last month at the dollar store. It's very happy on our dashboard.

This picture was taken when in Quartzsite last week. We stopped for a couple of nights at High Jolly 14 day area.

When we headed north towards Las Vegas, it was raining and we could see fresh snow on the mountains from the overnight and early morning rains.

These clouds are an unusual sight in Arizona/Nevada.

Palm Desert CA

We have been at Palm Desert for a couple of weeks and are leaving tomorrow. We have been relaxing and enjoying the nice sunny weather.

On Wednesday, we drove to "The Slabs" over near Niland, CA. On the way, we stopped at one of the state parks on the Salton Sea.

Click on the photos to enlarge.

This was the first time I have seen a beach made of barnacles!

Just before The Slabs is Salvation Mountain.

Then we got to Slab City or 'The Slabs'.

This is the Welcome guard shack.

This is a couple of decorated vehicles and a decorated trailer.

This is the community bulletin board.

This is The Oasis, note the patio chairs.

Some areas were clean and very much like Quartzsite...

But others were unbelievably junky.

It was truly an interesting day!
