Yup, aware of temps and water issues. 2-3 days max, leading up to a friend's "turning 40" party in Las Vegas. Figured I'm going to be in the area anyways for that, why not try to sneak in a couple days beforehand and see the area? Usually we either fly in, or just drive through ... never really stopped to explore. Trying to remedy that ... :)
Thanks for the information ... will be checking it out!
