Vegas Lights

We were in Las Vegas about a week and a half ago. While it is interesting there during the day, it really comes to life at night. Las Vegas at night.

The casinos are all lit up, it's hard to know where to look first.

There are lit water falls...

...and lit streets.
...and lit buildings....

...and lit moving billboards...not that I'd notice that or anything

I thought that the signs were pretty.

All the pretty colors.

Oh look, it's the Eiffel Tower in Paris in Las Vegas all lit up. We decided to take the elevator to the top of the tower....all 541 feet of it. It's a half scale version of the real Eiffel Tower.

Here's the view from the top....the water show at the Bellagio was pretty cool from up above.

But the best part was seeing the lights going as far as you could see on every side.

I'm not sure which was East or West or what but every way you looked there were lights....

...and more lights....

....and more get the picture.

Here is a picture of the Las Vegas strip from above.

...and another one. Then it was time to take the elevator down, back to reality....

...the reality of Vegas that is.

Which really isn't very real at all.
