albeit a bit ostentatious.
Of course, it also does gaudy really well, too.
Even the buildings are giant screens for advertising. Can't really complain about it because they are freaking mesmerizing.
Las Vegas can also be weird. I have no idea why this wall of body parts exists. I just could not bring myself to say, "Hey, what's this wall of boobs and butts about?"
There is more to the area than the strip, though. I LOVED the Red Rock Canyon area. It's a photographer's dream. I half expected to see cowboys come riding around the bend at any moment.
The pic below does not do the massive wall of rock justice. To get an idea of how big it is, the photo following it shows the two guys that were climbing it when I took the shot. I didn't even know they were there. I heard them before I saw them and zoomed in for another photo. So look at the pic below where the red and white rocks meet, kind of near the center. Then look at the one following it to see the close-up of the two climbers.
While the natural flowers may not be abundant or large, they are exquisite.
I find it to be beautiful in an industrial, desolate kinda way. This is what you see in one direction,
and this is on the other side.
Lake Mead, the result of damming up the Colorado River is beautiful, too. This is just a small piece of it called Boulder Basin.
One last thing--a photo of a towel I found in Nordstrom's. I am definitely going to steal this quote to embroider on something.
