You’ll never be caught between a rock and a hard place at Delano Las Vegas. But when you enter the stylish new resort, you will have to walk between a divided rock – a 700-million-year-old metaquartzite, to be exact. It stands 10 feet tall and tips the scales at 126,000 pounds. That’s more than 10 [...]
