Here are some photos and one short video of the very busy 215 freeway which is a beltway that wraps around the city. The iPhone photos of the rocks were taken on the one-mile loop around Lone Mountain, some very ancient rock. I may be three-for-three on this, but heading home I came across yet another homeless person.
This time, it was an elderly woman just laying on the concrete very close to a four-lane road. I swung the bike around and carefully approached. I asked if she was OK. She sat up and said yes, she is OK, just getting some sleep. I thought about calling the police but didn’t since this person seemed coherent.
Once again, it’s such a damn sad thing to see happening to these people. Only they know how they ended up in these situations. Mental illness, alcohol abuse, or a combination of several things, we will never know. I’ve seen three homeless people in about as many days, there must hundreds if not thousands of homeless in Las Vegas.
