Happy New Year from Las Vegas!

Without having to brave the crowds on The Strip we're able to watch all the action from the house (as well as several fireworks displays from the surrounding community):

The best shots are of the Stratosphere Tower which is closer to the house (and much taller than the other buildings)

Bettina had to hand-hold the camera for the video as we couldn't find the other tripod in time


  1. Looks amazing Ed. Wonder if the City has to pay the owners of the Stratosphere tp put thousands of fireworks on it? I was thinking the same about the London Eye here in Blighty. Enough of this pondering, Happy New Year!

  2. Woodsy, the fireworks actually stretch from the Stratosphere on the north end of the Strip southward to the MGM Grand (unfortunately it's hard to capture all the action from where we live). There are seven different firing locations along the Strip but I'm not sure who actually funds the whole show (LV Chamber of Commerce? the Casinos? or a mix of the two?) Anywho, as you can imagine it draws a huge crowd. Happy New Year!
