Vegas Day 3: Back to Red Rocks

Today we went back to Red Rocks for some more bouldering. It was waaaaaaaaay better in many ways than our first trip out there on Friday, since the weather was MUCH better, so the rocks were much warmer and there was less wind too. We were also way less nervous about climbing so we did a much better job and had a more exciting time with many more climbs. It was AWESOME!!!!!!

We did a few big ones, and one of the climbs I did, I went up really cleanly and hardly hesitated at all, it was in general a much better climbing day than Friday. Good stuff!!

Tonight we came back and had a smaller dinner, I just got some Chili and Breadsticks, now John is downstairs in the casino playing poker, and I've got a couple hours left of internet here so I figure I'd post again since we're off to the Grand Canyon tomorrow. I tried to watch Simpsons but I guess it's not on here.

In the casino there was a booth with "Bico Australia" metal pendants, and I remember those from Australia cause they are awesome!!! Anyway I had no idea they had them here in the USA, so I was pretty excited to see them. And more excitingly they had a suuuuper cool Star of David in this surfer-y Australia kindof style pendant, it's freakin' cool and I decided to just get it. It was a little cheaper online but it's nice to get it right away, and it wasn't that much more just buying it here. Very cool stuff. I've got a nice leather necklace/chain thing from Greece I can put it on. Sweet.

So we're off to the Grand Canyon tomorrow, and hopefully on the way back we can check out the Hoover Dam, that would be sweeeeeeeeeet!!

Anyway, lots of great photos.
