7 Months on the Road Checking Off the Bucket List travel blog


Driving to Laughton ,NV had a 6 percent downhill grade for 11 miles . Finding the Edgewater Casino was easy the booth for the Jetboat ride not so much. We were the last ones to pick up our boarding passes. The boat held 34 passengers and went 40mph . The Colorado river is a bright blue green and only about ten inches deep in front of Casino row as we went toward Havasu Lake it gradually became deeper. There were lots of million dollar homes and beach houses on the banks, surprisingly large amount of public parks and places to camp. The bulk of the landscape was bare mountain rock scape. There were these small deep red cactus that grew out of the rock that looked like acne. It took two hours to get to London Bridge which was once in England and brought here by ship and rebuilt. This whole escapade took six hours. Dick did NOT see an elk. I did walk across the bridge and back. There was a sign on the bridge that said" the water is shallow, the boat traffic is heavy, NO jumping off the bridge." Check the Colorado river off our list.

Tomorrow is a pool day.

Sign in tourist shop. I am not a complete idiot. Some of my parts are missing.
