Mountains Outside Las Vegas

Mount Charleston View, originally uploaded by Gamut's Edge.

Flying in and out of Las Vegas always offers up some great views. I took this photo several days ago while climbing out of Las Vegas and flying towards the west. The highest peak in the distance is Mount Charleston.

One of the things I like about Las Vegas (perhaps the only thing) is how far out in the middle of no where the city is. When you leave Las Vegas you're in the middle of the empty desert. If you're ever in Veges I recommend renting a car for a day and driving out to Death Valley. It's only a few hours away, but it feels like you're driving across the moon.
