We left the dark skies of death Valley for the bright lights of Las Vegas this morning. Not much exciting on the trip to Vegas. A couple of roadside attractions and a lot of windshield shots of the mountains and clouds along the route. Worth mentioning in Amargosa Valley is the desert truck stop with an extraterrestrial makeover. It's a gas station and convenience store with a pink brothel around back. The wholesome looking Alien Bar & Grill in the rear of the store doubles as a topless bar at night. According to Roadside Attractions web site, the brothel, "Alien Cathouse," bills itself as the only themed brothel in the U.S. and free tours are offered by its friendly staff, who say that the Cathouse's most frequently requested fantasy outfit is Princess Leia.

I think we'll be in Las Vegs for an overnighter to do some grocery shopping and try to get some of Sue's prescriptions filled. We're staying at the Hitchin' Post Motel and RV Park in North Las Vegas. It's crowded and the spaces are tight, but it has a nice laundry which is where I am spending some of tonight. If we need to stay another day, we may move down to the the Oasis where we stayed a couple of years ago.
