Suburban Sprawl, Vegas Style

    Newer Older

    Our journey home yesterday had us leaving North Carolina just as a storm front was sweeping in, flying across the southern states, across New Mexico, Arizona, and Nevada, with an all too brief stop at Las Vegas to change planes before continuing on across California to Silicon Valley. This was taken just after we took off from Las Vegas to make our way home, and shows just some of the suburban sprawl that has surrounded Las Vegas in recent years.

      Great series of arial shots - from barren desert to urban sprawl. I know where I'd rather be and it sure isn't down in that mess!

      Incredible. I don't see much greenery. I guess it's all xeriscaping out there in the desert.

      I don't see much space for gardens/yards either.... that's life in the desert I guess :)

      wow, this just makes my stomach churn that someone was allowed to build this. it seems so miserable and unsustainable. how do you even get around without a car? how do you even find your way around in that maze in the first place? and what are people doing there, just locked up in their homes with the AC on in the middle of the desert? Wtf?
