Note to self: NEVER hug a cactus again!

Enough Confetti to choke a herd of Elephants!

Note the color of the crowd.  Definite division in fans.

Don't really get these, but they were being carried around the party.

I wish this was my yard!  The resort had orange trees for hedges.

We ate in the court yard of the resort one afternoon, if you got up from your table to fetch another beer, these birds would steal your food.

Palms at the resort.

The coveted tickets

The drive coming into the resort at night.

Same drive during the day.  Beautiful at any hour.

They called these the Camel Back Mountains.
