Red Rock Canyon, Nevada
Like Rebecca I am heading out to TAM 5 in Las Vegas shortly. Although I didn’t think I’d like Las Vegas before I visited there, I have to admit the city has grown on me. I’ve been there for the past two TAMs and also a few other times for geology work. Red Rock Canyon is one of my favorite places to go when I’m visiting Las Vegas. The bright neon lights of the strip can be fun, for awhile, but going out to the clean, quiet, breathtaking desert landscape that envelopes the city is very refreshing after a couple of days of being blinded by gaudy casino carpets.
In any case, I’m looking forward to a fun mixture of casino and desert adventures as well as being able to see some of my favorite magicians, scientists, and skeptics from all over the world. And yes, a geology friend and I will be going to Red Rock Canyon on Sunday. If you really want to come along, we may be taking a mini, impromptu tour on Sunday afternoon. After Rebecca’s presentation, of course!
If you’re not going to TAM 5, you should be! Buy a plane ticket now or drive/run/walk/ride a camel to the Riviera Hotel by Thursday evening. You can still buy TAM tickets at the door, I believe. If nothing else, you can still meet Rebecca, myself, and other skepchicks who post on this forum.
Viva Las Vegas, Baby.
