Woke up at 3AM, and rode out to Death Valley. We got there while it was still dark, and watched the sun come up over the mountains. Seeing the Perseid Meteor shower in the desert was amazing, without any nearby city lights, the shooting stars were so bright that they seemed to light up the whole sky. Left California, heading back to Vegas, with a short stop to photograph a brothel. It was 100 degrees by 10am.

We napped for a bit and did laundry, before heading to The Strip. The ride wasn't as much fun as expected, the lights took about six minutes at a time, and I kept shutting the bike off to stop it from overheating. We went to M&M World, and a few casinos, having a buffet at Excalibur, and watched the people who weren't so good at math throw their money away in the Luxor.
