    I just checked out the Palmer course on a youtube flyover, that 6th hole looks great and I imagine the next hole (par3 over canyon?) is also very picturesque from the tee. In my mind on the 6th, I'm booking it for a drive and a towering PW into that backdrop for a birdie opportunity. In reality, I'll be happy to scramble my bogey.

    That "next hole - par 3 over a canyon" you mention is the second and third golf photos from that day's report. For a closer look, click on the image to be taken to my Flickr, where you can then click on the image again to enlarge it and get a really good look.

    Thanks @Nittany1. Tad more nervous about this trip because of the rising numbers but I will be hyper careful and have adjusted my trip to a little less indoor dining and other activity and more outdoor. I can't believe I'll be on a flight in less than 36 hours!

    I was on the fence about a last minute Thanksgiving trip.
    They are closing Philly down,looked like a good time to go.
    Then this week,three of my employees and one partner got COVID .
    Freaked me out as a close call but I need to be available while the are quarantine

    After reading Matty Ice's report I just remembered a weird thing that happened during my trip. I forget what day it was, but it wasn't that late at night, I wanna say maybe 7 or 8 pm. (IIRC, it was one of the times as I was returning to the room to eat my dinner.) I had taken the Aria elevator up to the 50th floor, got off, and rounded the corner to find two guys on the floor in the hallway. One was on the phone talking to someone, but the other one seemed completely passed out and was laying across the entire hallway.

    I said to the conscious guy, "Everyone ok here?" and he said yes, so I assumed his friend was just blackout drunk and didn't make it back to the room. Didn't see or hear anything else, so I don't know what happened from there. Was kinda weird having to step over another human being laying face down on the hotel carpet, though.
