Road Closed!

This is actually Las Vegas Boulevard but many miles south of the city obviously. The road runs most of the way to the California-Nevada line from Las Vegas but just turns to desert at one point. It does run through the town of Jean, Nevada and further south several miles before ending.

Las Vegas Boulevard is named as such in Primm, at the state line though. Too bad the road doesn’t go the full distance which is over forty miles, it’s a much nicer drive than the fifteen freeway it straddles most of the way. The bright light or dot to the left in the photo is one of three collector towers at the Ivanpah Solar Plant, just across the border in San Bernardino County, California.

Making Electricity

I really like the photo with the Ivanpah Solar Plant in the distance. It also contains buildings at Primm, Nevada and then the big power line towers. The buildings in the foreground are in Nevada, the Ivanpah Solar Plant is just across the border in San Bernardino County, California. Many Californians come to Primm to gamble of course, and to purchase lottery tickets.
