Today was a Sunday, and a travel day. Had brunch at a place called “Eat” in downtown Las Vegas. Met with a friend who is working on the Downtown Project, which sounds really exciting. Seems like there is a lot that is going to happen in Las Vegas over the next few years.
Hit the road to Phoenix via a stop at the Hoover Dam. The whole time I was just trying to figure out how that whole thing worked. I stopped at a Subway on my way here–that is probably subway sandwich number 6 on this trip. The drive was very nice while it was still light. Took close to six hours total with a few stops for food and at the Hoover Dam. You can see very interesting rock formations, as well as just lots of wide open space. In a way it was similar to the LA -> Vegas drive in that there was a lot of open expanse in the desert, but this was a bit rockier and a bit more colorful.
