Omigosh – I’m showing another image of George. Well, it’s because I’m still in Las Vegas, and it just too weird to not be attending Interbike! Interbike is the only reason I ever go to LV, except for this trip. So I had to find a LV cycling image, and what better pic than the hunky George Hincapie, from the 2005 Expo…

Quick update: LV is the usual tacky, plastic place – nothing is real here on the strip, whether it be the Statue of Liberty, the Eiffel Tower, showgirl boobs, or a guy driving a very nice van around a gas station parking lot, with his wife and three kids inside, begging for money to get to Salt Lake City.

However, I found an awesome place that is a photographer’s delight – The Valley of Fire State Park - about 55 miles north of LV. I was there for a couple of hours late yesterday, but the sunset arrived before I got to all the locations. So, along with a couple of friends, we’re heading back this morning for more. Now, I’m not usually a landscape photographer, and I brought limited lenses with me, but this place is really, really cool.

I could have shown you a shot, but, for the first time in five years, I left my card reader at home, so I can’t download my images to my laptop. Duhhh …Guess when I go on a non-cycling shoot, my brain takes a vacation.
