Day 1: Arrival in Las VegasIn Munich, after unpacking and demonstrating our photo-stuff twice to the security, we boarded the plane. The long flight to Denver was not as bad as expected. In Denver, we did not catch our connecting flight to Las Vegas, but we were booked to the next flight without any worries. Looking out of the window in the plane to Vegas, I could not believe my eyes when I recognized “Factory Butte” and the Valley of Fire -- I guess my memories of Google Earth helped me there. Tsuki claimed to have seen Upheaval Dome on the other side of the plane! In Vegas we were shuttled to Alamo and were confronted with an empty choice-line of our type of vehicle. I then just asked for a 4x4 Chevy Trailblazer, and a couple of minutes later we got one! Not getting a decent car was really one of my major concerns. Well, we got to the hotel and threw ourselves onto the bed. The reception of the hotel beeing in the middle of a casino really was hilarious. Because we were late and there was no energy left for checking out the city today, we booked another night.
