veteran-cemetary-boulder-city-nevadaboulder-city-nevadaBoulder City is a charming City. It is the ONLY city in the whole State of Nevada where there is no gambling. It has a "Picture Perfect" downtown area. It is also home to Lake Mead and Hoover Dam.hoover-dam-coloraso-riverIt is about 20 miles, due South of Las Vegas.

My Dad and Mom are buried here, at Veterans Cemetery. My Dad was in World War II.It is a really beautiful Cemetary. A strange feature of this cemetery is no headstones are allowed here. Flat Ground Stones only. Boulder City's population is mostly retirees. Warm weather, no yard work, clean cars, does it get better than that?



 

If we continue south we'll reach the tiny little town of Nelson, NV.current-nelson-nevadaNelson, unlike Boulder City has a cafe, and a possibly not working gas station. In the Cafe/Gift Shop, they will tell you all the Glory Stories. And they have many. They have a gold mine.nelson-gold-mineGold They also have a plane graveyard here.airplane-graveyardThis photo was taken as a prop for some big movie production Most of the little planes out there are left over from WWII, I think.

 

If you hop onto I-15 going South (West), going towards Los Angeles, you'll come upon a road called ZZYZX Road. The stories that you hear about zzyzx-roadthis particular road are many. You know the ones, 20 people were murdered while driving on this road. Murderer's and Rapists live on this road. My personal favorite is "the aliens from area 51 live on this road"

 


So this is the end of our trip South. OMG there is so much to see and do, OFF STRIP.
