It was a cold winter day with lots of records broke they say
We had to get out and see something new
So off to Death Valley we flew
When we got there it was sunny and warm
So we knew there was no chance of a winter snowstorm
We saw the dry lake bed that was flat as could be
From this point we knew we were far below the sea
We stopped at the visitors center and saw a good show
The ranger said Echo Valley was the place to go
We found the trail and headed up hill
The trail was easy with not much of a thrill
But the scenery was great and we enjoyed it much
We looked at it closely but did not touch
The time ran out and we headed for home
With memories of the trip and more places to roam

Cece and Aldo went to Fremont Street to do some reminiscing. While there, Aldo posed as a "living sculpture" with a cowboy there. They were brave, as the temperatures barely got out of the 30's today and they had to walk outdoors to take advantage of the venues.
John and Brenda said that one of the most amazing things they learned about Las Vegas was that they were able to go to church right off the Las Vegas Strip. Guardian Angel Cathedral is right behind the Encore Hotel/Casino. They stopped by the indoor garden at the Wynn after breakfast.
They also had a chance to see the completed display at the Conservatory at the Bellagio Hotel. This display was celebrating the Chinese New Year.
At the end of the day, we had a wonderful potluck in the campground's meeting room. As usual, the food was delicious and plenty of it. Sally made some points with the men by letting them go first to go get their food.
Submitted by group effort..... thanks everyone!
