As a member of the Yucca family, it's not really a tree, just grows like one. Like my other favorite tree, the Giant Sequoia, it can live a long time. With an extensive root system, it can survive the desert for hundreds of years, possibly making it to 1000 years old.
This one is down, but not out.
We moved on to Las Vegas where we were meeting some of Ron's family who came in for a Jimmy Buffet concert. It seems Las Vegas has been overrun with Bighorn Sheep.
And wild horses.
Of course we've been here several times before so I'm not going to repeat myself. For a glimpse of the Fremont Street craziness, here's a previous post. We stayed overnight at The Orleans Casino which has posted some unfriendly signs since last year. But nobody threw us out. It's only a mile or so off the Strip and we had a sunset view of New York, New York from the parking lot.
