Quick Trip to Las Vegas and Death Valley  (page 1)

At the end of her first semester, Leo had a couple of days off from school, so we thought it would be a great time to get away for some fun. We spent a day in Las Vegas and saw Cirque du Soleil (Mystere), Ethel M's chocolate factory, Star Trek at the Hilton, the M&M store (including a 3-D movie complete with yellow 3-D glasses) and had lots to eat. The next day, we drove to the lowest point in the western hemisphere - Death Valley - with a stop at Rhyolite, a ghost town (including a house made of bottles).
