One of the top tourist places to visit in Cleveland according to Trip Advisor was a fun stop making us wish that we had something like this in Chicago. Tons of food options with shops selling all kinds of meats and sweets. Great old building with lots of interesting elements.
The ultimate end point on one of the hikes in the Red Rock National Park near Las Vegas is to get to this pond, about an hour into the hike. Since I didn't know about this when I started the climb, I wasn't prepared to take a dip before heading back. They say you can see Las Vegas from the end point of this view, but I couldn't see a safe way around the pond so I didn't give it a try.
In 2011 I finally got outside of Las Vegas for a climb in the Red Rocks National Park in the Mojave Desert which is only 15 minutes from the strip. Have to visit this area again. Funny thing about the Red Rocks, is that the red colored sandstone are actually older than the yellow limestone but in many instances the older rock formation are found under the younger sandstone.
Nice natural framing on this shot; Got a chance to drive down California Route I from San Francisco to LA back in 2009. Stopped a number of times along the way to get some Pacific Ocean shots. Amazingly beautiful drive.
This beautiful hotel was the setting of our sales leaders meeting this May. Great location on Miami Beach. Definitely a young person's hotel. A young person with money as the club inside the hotel had a $150 cover charge for men, $100 for women. No riffraff allowed apparently. I will always remember the pounding club music that would start in the afternoon and go all evening. Fun place to visit.
Got to do a national sales meeting at the Laguna Beach Montage. This was the second Montage that I have stayed at, the first being Park City, Utah. All I have to say is that if I get asked to attend a meeting or conference at a Montage, I am all in. Two for two in high end hotels. Really amazing facilities.
