    Love your report. Will be there next Sunday and I am getting excited. Looks like you are having a good time and finding everything you want.

    WHAT IS THE DEAL --hot dog limit 3 per person. Are they concerned about my health? Did someone slap down $125 and say dogs for everyone? Is that per visit , or a daily limit? I don't want three dogs at a time , but things like that make me wonder.

    I can't wait to visit this place in August. Great picture! I wouldn't have thought the colors would have shown up so vividly in the middle (verses the beginning or the end) of the day.

    I imagine it's something more like this than the other reasons. It's like when we've got soda 12 packs on sale for 4 for $10 we'll limit it to eight per household just so we've got enough for all the customers. It's a loss leader to get people in the door and they want to have enough for everyone.

    Fun trip report. I love that you're getting out and seeing things outside the tourist corridor.

    I loved hiking at VoF. They are RED sandy trails. Turned my white tennis shoes a little red and stained a pair of socks I was wearing where they met the rim of the shoe. I washed those socks a bunch of times at home before all the red came out. :)

    Gorgeous photos of VoF. Looks like you had a wonderful day for the hikes. How hot was it?

    @Sonya it wasn’t hot at all for June. By the time I left the temp hit 90°, but it was mostly low 80s while I was there, with a strong breeze that kept me cool.

    So good to hear it is not hot. We are going to be there in 10 days and they are forecasting 106/108 throughout our stay. It is a dry heat,lol.

    You've gotten a crazy amount of straight flushes this trip, often paying less than a simple 4oak.

    Really enjoying this @jimboguy ! Lots of variety, love seeing the different casinos, and food. The happy hour Brussels sprouts are right up my alley, and Lapperts ice cream, wow!

    Where’s the hot dog? That thingy looked more like an onion, relish, mustard bun....:poke::poke:

    The angle of the pic of a slot canyon on Domes trail at VoF makes me want to venture in there! :cool:

    Thank you for sharing!

    I just spotted a cocktail server inside binions. I didn’t know they existed.
