I am now at McCarran airport waiting to get the red eye flight home.
We climbed a couple of days in Red Rocks before rain forced us down to Jtree. In Jtree we met some of the climbers that Ian had been hanging out with, and we ended up hanging out with quite a group of dirt bag climbers.
The weather was cold and windy most of the time, however we did get one nice sunny day. We climbed everyday, and drank a lot of beer. We went through the Chasm of Doom a couple of times; this year is an adventure through boulders and chimneys that is done at night in complete darkness.
The day we returned to Vegas the weather was cold with a threat of rain. Ian dropped me at the airport, and plans on driving home in about 1 week.

I am off to an interesting start. There is a storm coming in so my flight out of Saint John has been cancelled, however, I have been rescheduled and now arrive at 11:38am in Vegas, 12 hours earlier than planned.

This time we managed to connect with our taxi driver, Harry. We checked out of our lovely hotel and lugged all our bags through the back alleys to the taxi. First stop the spice market.
We took a rickshaw to the market, and while we no doubt paid too much, it was definitely worth having a guide to take us around.
From the spice market we went to the Red Fort.
The fort was impressive from the outside, but it is so big that inside it was just like any other part of the town.
After the fort was lunch, and by then we were tired and wanted to go home. Another hour of driving in the typical Indian traffic got us to the airport, followed by waiting, lining up, waiting, lining up, waiting, lining up, 14 hour flight, waiting …
