All done

Final day on the road. We travelled from Williams via Route 66 to Oatman, home of the stray asses... Then to Las Vegas via Chloride and across the Hoover Dam. These two so-called ghost towns provide very different pictures of off the grid living.

The weather turned poor for a while - rain and thunder and lightning - but it was clear enough later to go up the Stratosphere Tower and see the city by night after "All You Can Eat" at Circus Circus.  At the Stratosphere a few brave souls - all girls! - go on the rides at the top. John and I have, of course done it so many times we don't need to prove ourselves again...

All well and in the morning we head for the airport and our return home. It has been a great trip.

Only when we get back do we learn of the volcano and that we missed being stranded for two weeks in Minneapolis by about half a day.
