Tracy and me

Some of us did not make it home, or back to the hotel, until 4 a.m. after the meetup...but that didn't stop us from being a little adventurous the next day.  Melanie, Tracy, Angel, and I decided we would spend part of the day at Red Rock Canyon and have a little picnic.

I rented a convertible during my stay and so the four of us hopped in and set out for beautiful Red Rock Canyon.  Our plans were to put the top down but it was a bit windy and cool on Sunday and so we only put it down for some pictures.  We ate our lunch first, sheltered under some huge boulders to break the cold wind.

After our excellent meal we spent the next few hours climbing over the rocks and taking a lot of pictures.  In some of them we were being just a bit crazy, but it was so much fun!!!  On our return trip back to Vegas, we stopped for photos in the car.  We decided to leave the top down on the rest of the drive through the park...not a good idea.  Tracy and Angel were numb from frostbite.  We eventually got them thawed out, though.

We had a wonderful day, and I just want to say thanks to those girls for putting up with me.  They are some of the finest people you would ever want to meet, but I suppose there a lot of people on TravBuddy who would qualify for that.
