Last weekend I went to Texas for Southwesterns Homecoming. I think I've gone every year since I graduated and each one has been a blast. It is great to see tons of old friends and make some new ones to see next year. Unfortunately this year, my camera died after a few shots, so this album will be brief.

I got in Friday and the first big event was a Bob Schneider concert. I thought he put on a pretty good. He played a couple new ones and a lot of old ones. It was great to see a show with tons of people I know, but small enough the front of the stage was easy to get to.

As I said I saw more people then I could mention here, and many more I missed. I'm really sorry I don't have more pictures with more people, but proof is floating around out there somewhere.

Red Rocks Las Vegas

Last week I had a training for Visual Resources in Las Vegas, NV. Our primary area of study was in the Red Rocks NCA which is actually BLM land. We stayed at the Red Rocks Casino which had a great view.

Sunrise was the most dramatic, but it didn't last very long. The view out my window was perfect. It was great to watch while I got up.

One odd thing in the room. There was a TV in the bathroom that was placed in the mirror. It was a little strange to have it floating in my reflection. My room also overlooked the neat pool. Really there were about 11 pools in the complex. On Friday we got out early and I relaxed by it, but it was a little cold to get in.

The Red Rocks themselves were amazing. I took my own driving tour through them on Saturday before leaving town and it was beautiful. I couldn't believe how many people were out there. Every parking lot was full and crowded. I wish I could have done a hike myself but I enjoyed the view from the car.

Then it was a long drive back to Reno.
