My Las Vegas Photo Album



My husband Larry and I are enjoying our new "get away" condo in Las Vegas very much! We often travel west for research, and the condo serves as a wonderful "base" for our trips. I have visited just about every location I have written about so that my books/settings are as "real" as I can make them.


View of our new condo building and one of the swimming pools.

First of all, this photo is of our condo complex and one of the two swimming pools. The area of L.V. we live in is called Sunrise Manor. We are close to Nellis Air Force Base, which is cool because fighter jets often fly right overhead! We are also only about 15 minutes from Lake Mead, where you can take ferry boat rides to Hoover Dam and the views are gorgeous. We are about a 20 minute drive from the Strip, and about 15 minutes from Downtown LV and the famous Fremont Street.

The living room of our condo

This is the living room/ dining room of our condo. I was in "shopping heaven" buying all of the new furniture and decorator items to achieve a real southwestern flavor. However, I also brought a little bit of home with me in the form of paintings and gifts given to me by family and friends.

Here I am, standing on the balcony of our condo. Off our balcony we have a very close view of Sunrise Mountain and to the right is a view of the Strip -- really spectacular at night!

Here's Sunrise Mountain.

Our view of the Las Vegas skyline

This is our daytime view of the Las Vegas skyline. Those tall buildings are at least 15 miles away from the condo! Isn't it amazing how relative distance is out west? Vegas is huge now -- going on two million people -- and covers about 900 square miles of desert!

The Paris Casino, my favorite place to visit on the Strip.

Here is my favorite place to visit on the Strip, the Paris Casino. The casinos are gigantic and so beautiful. The Strip is now too long to walk in a day like a person used to be able to do. I'm enjoying doing a lot of sightseeing!

Another view of the Paris Casino. All of that water is a startling sight out here in the desert!
