Leaving Las Vegas

Up at 4am to catch the flight back to Cincinnati. I said there wouldn’t by many shots inside casinos, but seeing these old mechanical slot machines at the airport made me give in. Plus the whole day felt like a sleep deprived zombie.

The Neon Museum

I’ve been to Vegas, oh, three times? And I’ve wanted to visit the Neon Museum each trip. Turns out? It’s not that far away from the bustle of the strip. There are two parts: a garden of signs mostly no longer working visible day and night, and an evening experience called Brilliant that brings signs […]

A few images from the last day that didn’t fit with the others.

Northern California

Last day in Northern California. Time to get back home and wrap things up and buckle in. Ashi helps pack. Driving down the mountain. Highway 101 zips by. Stopped for some meatballs and beer along the way.

The mountain

Woke up to this view with gnome in the mountains of Northern California. (Thanks Brent!) Tis the rainy season. Redbud in bloom. Waterfalls at full force. Had a fresh salad from the tiny greenhouse to pair with fishsticks for dinner. A cat in the bag. This one is Ashi.
