Flying over Las Vegas

25 August 2008

Date taken: August 17, 2008 A 757, as the bird flies, over Las Vegas, Nevada.

I took this, and a few other photos of this plane landing, from the top of the Eiffel Tower in the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas.  This photo gives a fairly good glimpse at how Las Vegas is generally laid out and how much you can see from even slight elevation there.

For example, while I was on the phone with Eliza on the morning I took this photo, on the 26th floor of the Hilton Hotel - I could see all of Las Vegas.  I could see countless golf courses, resorts, casinos, convention centers, pools, bars, restaurants, and even the airport.  Not only could I see the airport, but I could observe the landing of planes (which happened every 4 minutes or so) from my hotel room.

I think the most impressive part of Las Vegas, is scale.
