OK, time for some more Vegas pictures. I took these driving home a few days ago - to show you what the strip looks like coming up from the south.
This is driving northbound on Las Vegas Boulevard - this used to be the main way into town from LA before I-15 was built.
You can see all of the big hotels. The Mandalay Bay is most visible to the left, as it's the closest coming from this direction. The end of the runway airport fence is on the right. Lots of billboards. The palm trees to the left are on a golf course. I drive up almost to the Mandalay, then turn left just before it.
That's the Welcome sign to the right of the picture. These are a little blurry - it was getting dark, and with the traffic I couldn't slow down. My camera isn't too good at low light levels, but it gives a nice motion blur (if you want it).
On the center divider is the famous 'Welcome to Las Vegas' sign. About three nights out of five there are people out there getting their photos taken by the sign. Tonight there was a TV news crew out. Last week there were some fashion photographers, with lots of lights and a pink Cadillac. I couldn't see if Elvis was there too.
