I snapped these photos after leaving that ridiculous almost two-hour wait at the phlebotomist office. Grrr. The foothills in the distance are a bit larger than they appear in the photo. It must be the 50mm lens? Lake Mead Boulevard crosses the entire width of Las Vegas Valley on an east to west axis.
It deadends on the west side at the foothills in the photo just after crossing over the 215 freeway. On the east side, the boulevard climbs sharply and eventually takes you into the beautiful Lake Mead National Recreation Area. Well worth the drive for any tourist that doesn’t want to waste their entire holiday in a casino on the Strip!
Las Vegas is a very well-groomed city!
