After losing some money, a credit card, and a small bit of our souls in Las Vegas, we set out to get back on track. Our first stop on the way out of the city was a quick breakfast. We found Egg Works, an okay little diner that is apparently a suburban Vegas staple with a high Yelp rating. It was good enough for mild hangover breakfast, but not that memorable.
Our second stop was the infamous Hoover Dam, which neither of us had ever seen. It was magnificent in all its concrete and art deco glory, but what got in the way of our enjoyment was the absurd blazing heat bearing down on us. We opted to make it a quick visit, snapped a few photos, and ducked out to hit the road toward San Diego, where good weather, a free place to stay, and wonderful company awaited.
