Day Eleven

Filed under: Personal — by teofilo @ 6:44 pm

I didn’t take any pictures today, but I did see some stuff.  I spent most of the day around the UNLV campus, including at the Marjorie Barrick Museum of Natural History.  The museum closes at 2:00 pm on Saturdays, so I didn’t get a chance to see everything there, but I did see the southwestern arts and crafts exhibit, which was my main priority, and a little of the Mesoamerican stuff.  It’s a pretty interesting place.

After that I headed up to downtown Las Vegas with the intention of seeing the old Mormon fort, but I wasn’t able to find it.  (I wasn’t really looking that hard.)  Then I headed down the Strip and out of town, intending to see Sloan Canyon, but I couldn’t find it either, which is not too surprising if you look at the directions at the link.  Neither of those was a high-priority destination for me, and I did get to see a lot of the city and the surrounding area, so I wasn’t too upset with how the day went.



  1. Without pictures there’s no proof you did any of that. When I was in Baltimore we walked around the JHU campus a bit and got a free, private tour of their museum. I can’t remember what it was called but it was pretty interesting…So, I am guessing you didn’t see Siegfried and Roy’s last show ever. Hope you did something equally fun! Are you going to give that other stuff a second try tomorrow? Maybe it already is tomorrow. In which case, I hope you’re doing it today. And, in case you’re interested, when I did a google search to make sure I spelled Siegfried right (I was pretty confident I got Roy) the results came back in Hebrew! I guess I better learn fast.

  2. I’m satisfied with the proof my memories give me. I considered giving the Mormon fort another try, but decided against it.

    I got your message, btw. My phone didn’t ring when you called, but that’s probably because I was traveling and didn’t have service. So it didn’t show any number, but I’m sure it’s a problem on my end, not yours.
