Las Vegas Sunset (Nevada) – In Another Minute (Week 296)

Nothing quite like the Las Vegas sunset, with the mountains in the background, the Bellagio Fountains in the foreground and The Strip in-between.

This week, my husband Scott Solary and I went to Las Vegas for the first time – to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary on December 30th. This included a renewal of vows ceremony with Elvis at Graceland Wedding Chapel and dinner at Le Cirque with a view of the Bellagio Fountains and the “Eiffel Tower”.

But first of all, we enjoyed the incredible view from the balcony of our suite at the Cosmopolitan Hotel. Of course, I had to capture that view for you in a time-lapse video that would show the Las Vegas sunset as it changed the city from being lit up by the sun to being lit up by the neon signs. The dance of the Bellagio Fountains was just the icing on top.

What appears to be a regular Ferris wheel in the shot, is called the High Roller and actually features 28 glass-enclosed pods that each hold up to 40 people. It takes each pod 30 minutes to complete the cycle. Naturally, you can bring drinks on board or hire a bartender to take the spin along with you. Will have to try that next time…

The song in this video is called “Twilight” and was written and performed by my friend Jason Matherne from Gainesville, Florida. Thank you and keep ’em comin’, Jason!

Next week, I’ll share another video with you offering more Las Vegas views. Maybe you’ll even get a glimpse of our Graceland Chapel wedding with Las Vegas Elvis…

For now, I wish you all a happy and healthy 2016. Thank you for virtually traveling and exploring along with me. And please always remember to be brave and be kind.
