Buffalo Bill's Nevada Casino

August 5, 2013
  Had a great breakfast in Henerson, Nevada with these people:

We hit the road on Sunday morning and went the back way to Pasadena ((I-15). I have gone to Vegas hundreds of times, but always through Kingman and Hoover Dam. I had never been the LA way, so that was fun, but the traffic was ridiculous. Did see mining style buildings way off in the distance and couldn't tell if it was and actual mining stamp mill or a casino:

Turns out it is Buffalo Bill's Casino with stamp mill style hotel (amazing, really) and a roller coaster, at left.

Crazy backups, going from eighty to ten miles an hour all the way to El Cajon Pass and on into Rancho Cucamunga. Got to Deena's bungalo at 4:30. Spent a nice day relaxing. Here is The Two Snoozers:
