Rock ‘n’ Eggroll

by , Aug 10, 2007 | 5:15 am

NOT LAS VEGAS–News media is always on the lookout for the next Jessica-in-the-Well, and yesterday there looked to be a chance of something like it when three teenagers kids ages 8-10 supposedly were trapped on a ledge in Red Rock Canyon — the coolest bit of Nature just outside Vegas. Well it turns out those crafty children were pulling a hoax on the rescue cops.

Anyhow, I’m glad there are no dead kids, because when I first heard the news of the potential tragedy, I instantly thought … “Ooh, this will be a good way to segue into my leftover pictures of Red Rock!”

    There is a lot to see and do in the Vegas area outside of gambling. For those of us who had under age 21 kids with us,…and stayed longer than a normal gambling trip, finding these thing out was a necessity. Thanks Mom/Grandma for the valuable leg work all those years.

    Now, when a losing streak hits, we know where to go and what to do without additional risk. For those of you who go to Vegas purely as a gambling trip, if you have unbelievably bad luck the first day, follow Dan’s pictures. It will not only save you a little money, but it will help clear your mind and refresh you when you do go back into the casino.

    Good pix, Dan!! Show some more “other Vegas” photos.

    Thanks, UR … what doesn’t make sense to me is how I wouldn’t pay $5 to take the “scenic drive” through Red Rock, but I was willing to make a $300 call with a dominated hand that ultimately sent me to Red Rock.

    A week ago me and Linda decided to go there. It happened to be raining that day and I did’nt think nothing of it. The rain was coming down so hard for about an hour that we waited for it to stop. when we decided to leave both exits of the $5 scenic drive were blocked off by mudslides. they say it happens once every 5 years and I happened to get stuck in it that day. beautiful place though, I plan on doing much hiking there.
