Share Your World – May 29, 2017

Prompts and Challenges

The Eiffel Tower
Paris Hotel and Casino
Las Vegas NV

What is the most famous landmark or building you have ever seen? The most famous is the Eiffel Tower. Ok, yeah, that sounds all romantic and everything but it was actually the one in Las Vegas. I also saw the Statue Of Liberty- no, not the one in Las Vegas. They do have one here, too, but the real one in New York. And I’ve seen the Grand Canyon. The real one!

Do you like long vacation or lots of mini-vacations? Right now we’re content with lots of mini-vacations. We’re gearing up for longer vacations by next year. Right now we’ve been doing lots of discovering in the southwest area. But we want to take Route 66 from here all the way to Illinois. That will possibly be our first long trip of 2018.

What is your favorite National or State Park? That would have to be Monument Valley. Of course, there’s also Canyonlands, Grand Canyon, Canyon de Chelly, Montezuma’s Castle, Arches, Capitol Reef. And the list goes on and on…

What is your fantasy vacation? Retirement is the ultimate fantasy vacation. Hopefully it does not remain a fantasy and we get to enjoy it.

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? I am grateful we were able to join family and friends in placing flags at the Riverside National Cemetery for Memorial Day.  I am looking forward to an uneventful week. But as so often is the case, once spoken aloud there becomes less of a chance.

And thanks to Cee for week after week of fun!

    1. I will never forget the first time I saw it. And at night, on the outside wall of the hotel there, they were playing John Ford’s the Searchers- shot in Monument Valley and one of my favorite westerns!

    1. The Las Vegas version of the Eiffel Tower is a half scale replica of the one in Paris. The Statue Of Liberty here is 1/3 scale. I forgot to mention The Empire State Building, too.

  1. Looks like you never have to leave Las Vegas Emilio. It seems like all of the landmarks are already there 😀 You did an awesome job on this image it looks as real as it gets.

  2. The real grand canyon…. haha. I lived in Arizona for 12 years before I went to see the grand canyon but it was beautiful. The route 66 trip should be fun and will probably result in some great photos!

    1. Nothing can prepare you for that view the first time you look out over the rim of the Grand canyon. It was a long, long time ago and I still remember it! Been back many times since but nothing compares!
