My sky at home is full of puffy clouds, maple trees, roof lines of my neighbor’s houses, and telephone wires. At night my sky is full of stars. In Vegas, though, the sky is very different.
There are palm trees instead of maple trees.
Mountains that remind me of Margene.
There are hotels. Lots and lots of hotels!
And 550 foot tall ferris wheels.
Some of the skies aren’t even real.
And some of them are replicas of other famous skylines – which seems especially poignant today.
All of that makes for some very pretty skies. But still, I missed the stars.
What a difference from the expected New England sky! If they are going to paint “fake skies” they should really consider a nighttime view, complete with stars.
Vegas is a world unto itself. My husband and I have never gone, because he’d rather be fly fishing. It looks like there’s been lots of change since last I was there!
such pretty scenery out there! Love those palm trees
Is that ferris wheel new-ish? I don’t remember it at all… and it seems like I wouldn’t forget something that’s 550 feet tall!! I remember Paris, though, it was right next to Planet Hollywood where we stayed (Barry Manilow was there at the time!) (we did not see him).
I know it’s never nighttime inside the casinos, but I never thought about it not being dark outside either!
Big city, bright lights. Who needs stars when the skies are that blue?
Oh, Vegas. (So not the Midwest.)
