Patman's 2001 Las Vegas Photo Album
Patman's 2001 Las Vegas Photo Album.
This is a quick-and-dirty photo album of photos I took while I was in Las Vegas around July 4, 2001. There's nothing too exciting about the photos, but the place has definitely changed since I was there in 1997. If you've never been, these photos will give you an idea of what to expect. It was blazing hot that day, and I was sweating up a storm. Be sure to wear comfortable clothe and SHOES. I managed to get a nasty blister on my right foot wearing not-so-broken-in tennis shoes.

Hint: For faster navigation, when you click on your first picture link, don't close that
2nd window, but resize this window and position it so you can see both windows
concurrently. I've designed it so that you can leave that 2nd (photo) window open, and
you can click to your heart's content in this first window, and the images will only show
up in that 2nd other window. This should also speed up your visit here. If you want
separate windows, then right click of the photo links and select the "open in new
