Early last year, I hopped on a big jet plane and flew home to Michigan for a quick visit with the family, great fun! Here are just five photos from what must be 200 photos taken. I used the tiny Sony RX100 Mark 7 camera which I have since sold. I’m not going to hop on the bike today because the damn wind is once again howling, welcome to winter days in Las Vegas! That’s OK, my bum needs a day off from that seat. I did see a guy riding a road bike this morning though on Lake Mead Boulevard complete with his very colorful riding outfit and super skinny bike tires. Not an electric bike, hah!
All the way from 2018 I give you a random collection of photos this afternoon. The little dinosaur was found in the parking area at Calico Basin, someone’s child is crying somewhere! But, it does point out that there are still live dinosaurs in the Mojave Desert. The old aircraft might be a McDonell Douglas aircraft. And the trash at the garbage bin was right in front of my apartment back in 2016, I despised that apartment and still do. Apartment life sucks!
Treasure Island Resort seems OK, I’ve never been inside the place. The Stratosphere Tower was likely photographed heading south on Las Vegas Boulevard, well north of the main venues, you are probably familiar with. Finally, the photo with the building in the foreground is the One Summerlin Building, located in Downtown Summerlin. Many of the big-name resorts are visible in the distance which is much further away than they appear in the photo.
No, I didn’t receive a ticket while driving this morning but the traffic was tough. I am ticketed for a flight to Michigan next month, it’s family time!! It will be wonderful to have everyone together again but I’m not looking forward to the much colder weather up there. This native Michigander is a desert rat these days who loves a mild winter climate!
