Las Vegas

October 11, 2009 - October 21, 2009


I had a free flight on Southwest I had to use before the end of December.

I hadn't been to Las Vegas for a couple of years and I've been missing the desert and mountains.

Even having just driven down the Blue Ridge Parkway. It's just not the same.

I also needed to go to DC the end of October.

So I used my free ticket to fly from Orlando to Las Vegas and then fly from Las Vegas to DC.
