Toward Las Vegas (June 26, 2009)

Visit the most scenic places in Death Valley. Travel to Las Vegas and spend the evening on the Strip.

Death Valley


We started this day by discovering the most scenic places in Death Valley. After enjoying the eroded landscape at Zabriskie Point, we reached Badwater. Located at -86 meters, it is the deepest point in the North American continent. In front of us stretched a vast area made of dry mud and salt. We went back to the north to see an astonished and inhospitable surface covered with mud and salt crystals at Devil’s Golf Course. Then we took Artist’s Drive, a one-way road which leads to Artist’s Palette, remarkable rocky ground with various colours. Some scenes of Star Wars set nearby; if you look carefully you can identify some places... Before leaving the park we took Twenty Mule Team Canyon, a road similar to Artist’s Drive but a little less beautiful.

Las Vegas


Then we went to Las Vegas. We booked a room in Flamingo, we did not regret our choice, and its central location allows visiting easily the Strip.
Las Vegas is a surprising town that seems superficial to us. We started the visit with Wynn, and then we went on the hotels. They are all different and unusual because of their size or their decoration. If we had to select one of them it would be the Venetian for its decor and its atmosphere. Paris hotel has also an impressive decoration and it was funny to see some monuments of our capital. We ended the day with a buffet at Paris hotel, the food was supposed to be French but it was not the case. Finally we tested only slot machine, we would need more time to dare to play on a table.
