A Grand Adventure

I have always wanted to take a helicopter from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon.
Dean and I decided to treat ourselves this year for our birthdays...

A limo came to pick us up at our hotel and take us to the airport. On the way we stopped and picked up a girl from India who was in Vegas for a conference. We were so excited to get to visit with her because we are planning to go to India in a couple of years.

While we were waiting for our helicopter to be ready, our new friend Mandavi from Mumbai, came over in shock and told us that her assinged helicopter had a broken air conditioner and they wanted to reschedule for later that day. She was so sad because she was leaving that evening and would not be able go...
We felt very bad for her and were trying to figure out how we could help. Dean decided he would give her his seat because he could go another time and this was Mandavi's only chance. She was so thankful for the offer and the helicopter company quickly made the transfer.

So off we went...very exciting!




Lake Mead...

Hoover Dam...

Grand Canyon...



At the end of the day I had a Grand Adventure...and Dean made a Grand Gesture!
A win win for both of us!

Hi Jana!
What a great trip, and a wonderful guy you have there as well. Mike and I are determined to sail this year for the first time. Mike took a trip to India a couple years ago after we lost his dad. He went alone that time. It changed his life. I plan to join him next time. So here's to new adventures! If you ever want to talk India, Mike would love it.

Happy Traveling!
Deb
