Approaching from the North on the fifteen freeway southbound from the Valley Of Fire area. As you can tell, Las Vegas is truly in a big valley, the drop into the valley is a long way down. It’s impossible for me to remove or reduce the haze that the smog creates in any photo. The valley is much less smoggy during the super hot summer months. No wonder that each car and truck must pass a smog test to receive authority to drive from the county/state. It’s nothin g like California smog levels though!
