Leaving Las Vegas for Lake Mead

No, we are not staying in Las Vegas although we will cruise through one evening . . . just because. Taking photos of some of the old casino signs is somewhat appealing but after having driven through the other day, I am having second thoughts. The outskirts of Las Vegas reminds me of that song by Malvina Richards:

 Little boxes on the hillside                                                    Little boxes made of ticky tacky                                        Little boxes on the hillside                                                    Little boxes all the same.

One element of Southwestern architecture I do like is that they choose earth colors to blend in with nature–yeah, I like that a lot.

      • Oh, I am so glad to hear that from you. See, the desert is touching you too with its vast vistas, blue skies, clean air, and incredible sunsets and sunrises. And the amazing changes in the colors of the lands with the changes in the sunlight. I love the southwest US, best in the land. 🙂
