This is one of many drainage and flood control channels around Las Vegas. Sadly, people are living in these channels near the Las Vegas Strip and elsewhere in the city.
This is sad and very dangerous too, a flash flood can happen during monsoon season. This year’s monsoon rains once again never came though. Would you enter the gaping hole?
Taken yesterday at the little park, you can see how homes have crept into any buildable area on the slopes of the west side. This has me wonder how new homes can continue to be built considering the current state of things. Are there enough jobs here to afford these homes? I sure hope so!
Located at this tiny park in the roundabout is this steel horse. and steel California Barrel Cacti. It was kind of tough to bring the light level up on the side of the horse as the sun wasn’t in an optimal position.
