Even though the hotel had a complimentary shuttle, I never got to the lights of the casino district this trip. Too much else to do going on. But, by hanging out a 4th floor window I got this shot of the Stratosphere, which is the strip's farthest North establishment. Pretty good considering we were located 2 miles South of the southernmost end of it.
Sometimes I use my camera as binoculars to later figure out what it was I couldn't quite see in the far distance.
Of course, the pictures usually come out horrible, but, that is some fine magnification for a pocket camera.
