    Flying Over Vegas (photo heavy)

    Since I technically work in the tourism industry I figured that I would show some Vegas love. These are around Vegas's McCaren airport, the Hoover Dam, our fuel farm, over Summerlin, and Red Rock State Park. Enjoy.

    Well, color me confused! I live in AZ and had heard the Hoover Dam bypass was open to traffic, then see your photos with big sections of the bridge missing. I just checked and yes, it is open. So I guess you took these sometime before October 9th when traffic started across the bridge.

    Next time I would say how you "built an amazing scale model of the Hoover Dam" and advertise the picture as such. It would absolutely blow people's minds! It truly looks more like a model than real life, it has some kind of "fake" looking quality to it, even though it's most impressive. But it's totally believable as a model... the most detailed model ever created, lol!

    Thanks for the stunning pictures. We have been to Las Vegas in January 2008 and of course we made a trip to Hoover Damm and to the Grand Canyon. Unfortunately we couldn't see anyhing of the Canyon, because it was snowing and foggy.

    Re: Flying Over Vegas (photo heavy)

    Thanks guys, the pictures where taken January/February time frame. I've been on the night shift and in the paint booth since then so haven't been flying so much. Oh, and even though I work for a Grand Canyon tour company I have NEVER been to the Grand Canyon. Seen it from about 30,000 feet once and been through the diorama at DL, that's it... I think it's kind of funny.

    I should've made something up about the dam pic, I think it's dam funny that it looks like a dam model. But it's just a dam photo shop job...

    Hopefully the bypass makes the roads a lot easier for commercial traffic. It should shave a substantial amount of time/miles off their post 9/11 commute. Tink and I took the kids over Labor Day weekend and they held a bike race on the bypass (was before it was opened to traffic). It is a HUGE bridge, a perfect compliment to a monument like the Dam.
