Staying at lake Tahoe, plenty of hiking and waters sports available if you are keen, we took a drive up the hills via Carson City to the gold mining town of Virginia City. Took and guided train ride of the original tracks and took in some of the history.

Stayed at bishop overnight and drove to Yosemite National Park today. Drove to the village at the bottom of Yosemite while taking in the amazing vistas. Then drove to lake tahoe for two nights.
Pretty uneventful day today driving from Vegas to bishop. We did pass through a small town and took a photo of this amusing sign.
In Las Vegas now, did some outlet shopping on the south side then went to the Bellagio Casino on the strip to see Cirque De Soleil 'O' (French for water). Show was the most amazing performance I have ever seen. Stage was a giant circular below stage pool where the depth varied during the performance from dry to shallow to 15ft deep for the divers. Walked the strip before the show and met Elvis and other characters. Driving in Vegas was very scary!
On the way to Las Vegas via Seligman on route 66. This was the town the Cars movie was based on and we went to the shop featured on Billy Connely's route 66 special.
