Our Site At The Las Vegas RV Resort
On the road out of the park a double tractor trailer tried to make a u-turn, realizing he was on the wrong road, and jack-knifed. It brought traffic to a halt for us big rigs but cars could scoot around him. After about 20 minutes, he finally was able to drag his back tires along the gravel enough so he could complete the turn. Once he was turned around was another matter. His hook-up for the second trailer was un-driveable. So he was stuck.
Well, when we left Valley of Fire State Park we made our way to Las Vegas. It’s a short 1 hour drive but it feels a lot longer.
It was made a little longer by this…
A Double Tractor Trailer Jack Knifed Trying To Turn Around
At least we were not stuck anymore.
Our first glimpse of Las Vegas on the horizon looked like this…
Vegas In The Smoggy Valley In The Distance
On the side of the highway are all these electrical lines. Now you know Vegas uses a lot of electricity but this is ridiculous. So maybe instead of dropping your money into the slots, maybe you should hedge a sure bet and invest in the local electric company.
The traffic out here is insane. I don’t know any reason why anyone in their right mind would want to live out here and fight this traffic all the time. Not to mention, look at all that smog. YUK! And we are lucky enough to be breathing it in for 2 weeks. Double YUK!
All The Electrical Lines Leading To Vegas
Wouldn’t it be nice if they could build one of these mega hotels GREEN!
That would be the day.
So we’re just sitting here wondering why we had to be here. Listening to helicopters, planes and sirens. Yup, the lovely sounds of a city.
Oh yes, CES is coming up next week. What fun that will be.
