Twitpic of the Trip

There was no way that any picture other than one taking from or of the suite at the Palms wasn’t going to win Twitpic of the trip.  The hard part was just picking which one considering the view we had of the strip as well as the over the top room we stayed in.  Ultimately, I went with unique.  I’ve seen loads of awesome photos of the strip taking off-strip but I’d never seen this.  The “pic of the Trip” is a shot taken from the northeast corner of the room the morning after.  I picked this because it really gives you an idea of how large and over the top the place.  What you don’t see is this is only a little more than half of the entire suite.  You are still missing the “visible to the whole suite” shower with stripper pole in it as well as the 2 ½ baths, the floor to ceiling glass with remarkable views of the strip or that the entire suite is wired with speakers in the ceiling.  I only wish I had this thing for 360 Vegas Vacation because it was epic.
