Homes on this area of the valley are of varied styles, some are gated and some are non-gated. Olive trees are also common in the area. It is an open community which means the streets are open to non residents.

Small cabins in a community at Mt. Charleston. Even with snow on the ground the weather is comfortable and just right for hiking in the area.

^It is around 45 minutes from the Strip, long commute by Vegas standards. There are other communities in the area as well.
I forgot these two from the group. Hehehe.





Here is another community although I did not explore the area, homes on this side are far larger and the views are scenic.

I will post photos with more people, activity later on as I like to keep it a mix of photos from off the Vegas Strip. More from the ski area. As far as the greenery, it is definitely a welcome sight.

More from the sub-urban area off the Vegas Strip which I prefer than the urban area of Las Vegas which is the Strip full of not only locals but visitors. Downtown area has activities both with locals and visitors but with less humanity compared to the Strip. Hehehe. With Vegas receiving over 37 million visitors, the suburban areas are a welcome sight for us locals. Yesteday for lunch I had Taco Salad for lunch while my friend had a small Cheeseburger. Photo of my seldom seen friend waiting for his food. Hehehe.
