Travel: Las Vegas (Caesar's Palace) & The Grand Canyon

This was my third time going to the Grand Canyon National Park and, let's say, billionth time going to Las Vegas (I've honestly lost count at this point). The difference this time was that we brought along my brother who had yet to see the grand ol' crack in the earth.
  • Day 1: Drove to Vegas and checked into Caesar's Palace. I know, I know. It's quite a departure from my routine, as it's definitely not a 5-star hotel, but my brother had given us the DVD for The Hangover for Christmas. Need I say more? Honestly, who doesn't now question pager service when standing near the check-in desk? The good news is that we got a free upgrade :D. The jacuzzi bathtub rivals that at the Trump.
  • Day 2: Breakfast at Bellagio. We checked out the nice pool area but decided it was better to leave ASAP in order to arrive at the GC at sunset (as we say in photography: golden hour!). It turned out to be cloudy though :(.We ended up having dinner from Criollo Latin Kitchen.
  • Day 3: Drove the 400+ miles from Flagstaff, Arizona to LA. Note: gas is much cheaper on the Arizona side, so fill up before you cross the state border. Arizona also runs on a different time zone (keep that in mind for checking-out).
