We've just returned from a 2 night trip down to Laughlin NV. It sits on the Colorado river across from Arizona.
We got a really good offer on a room, and thought it would be nice to get out of town for a few days.
On the way down we took a little detour to a ghost town called Nelson. It was about 11 miles off the main road
They do bus tours out here. After looking for a very short time I'm not sure why anyone would want to see a handful of old buildings and cars. It reminded my more of a junkyard than a town.
Anyway, 7 miles past the town was the Colorado river, or at this point, Lake Mohave.
And sorry for this pic. It's me on the river walk in Laughlin. This is why you see more pics of Craig than me. He just can't hold the camera steady at all!
We gambled just the first night since we didn't do well, and I hate losing money. But we had a nice time, nice room and returned safe.
