Viva Las Vegas

As promised, here are a few of my pictures from our helicopter flight into the western part of the Grand Canyon. Several pictures were shot from the canyon floor; several were shot from the air as we cruised over the canyon; finally, there is a single shot of Hoover Dam and the Colorado River (Lake Mead is in the foreground, cropped out for size uniformity) taken at dusk from about 3 miles away inside the backseat of the moving helicopter. The combination of speed and low light made the photo challenging. Nevertheless, it didn't turn out too badly.

On an unrelated topic, there is an excellent set of PERS-related discussions on our newsgroup - PERS Oregon Discussion. This group, hosted on Yahoo Groups, is easy to join. You can read messages there and post there. See the link on the left to get to the group's membership page. We're pushing to have about 25 new members this week. Read PERS and retirement news there; our motto is "Politik Kills". No political discussions will be found there.
