Water flows through this area during Spring when the snow is melting and also after a heavy downpour. You can see the dry river bed on these photos.

Thanks Morenoque, but the photos look dull compared to the original photos.

The master-planned community of Lake Las Vegas and its ghost town village in the city of Henderson. Hahaha more on the ghost town later. The waterfalls greet you on your way into the community. Yes the community loves to waste water, there are water traps, golf courses, ponds and a 300-acre lake aside from the waterfalls by the entrance.

The ghost town, I meant the village of vacant store fronts, vacant restaurants, shuttered casino are in the center of Lake Las Vegas. Locals in the community of Lake Las Vegas and locals in the city of Henderson never truly patronized the businesses here. The end result, businesses closed. This is Lake Las Vegas ghost town. Lake Las Vegas was marketed as a high end community and the village with its businesses were hoping the rich people will keep the village alive, WRONG. The rich people are still living in Lake Las Vegas and the ghost town remain. Residents in the city of Henderson are also to blame for not patronizing local businesses. I will not drive nearly close to an hour so I could have a lunch or a meal here. Lesson, patronize local businesses in your neighborhood.

The Hilton property at Lake Las Vegas. This was once a Ritz Carlton hotel.

Earlier this afternoon at Desert Breeze Park Soccer Complex, grass and the plants are loving the rain we've been getting. Lake Mead will also get its share today, hehehe!

Looking at these photos make me miss my Ocean Kayak which I gave to my nephew's dad. A couple of guests from Hilton.

Dropped by the Cosmopolitan this afternoon to have a meal at Eggslut! This restaurant is always busy. As seen on the first photo, a section of the Chandelier Bar - 2nd floor is blocked off. Cosmopolitan is undergoing a $100 million renovation of its suites and upgrades to other areas of the resort as well. Cosmopolitan is adding more seating for the customers of Eggslut and Milk Bar, two popular restaurants with a loyal following.

Don't ask me why Flickr has two different sizes of my photos.

Lake Las Vegas and its mansions. There are other developments within the community but the mansions are located, no surprise here, by the man-made lake and the ghost town.

There is a small grocery store and a Mexican restaurant/bar that is open here, who knows how long it will stay open. We got the San Pellegrino from the store during our visit.

Update on the Mercer in Spring Valley. It looks like it will have commercial tenants on the ground floor which will be good adding vibrancy to the area. This development looks like a smaller version of the Gramercy. Another development on this area of Spring Valley, further down the same road, a brand new senior retirement housing is under-construction.
