Single-image Sunday: Nevada Roadside Attractions   1 comment

Three miles from a small Nevada town.  I only took a picture!

Three miles from a small Nevada town. I only took a picture!

Far from the glitz and glamour of Vegas, in the desert a few miles from the dusty old mining town of Beatty, there is something you can only see in Nevada, the only state with legalized prostitution.  I just had to have a picture, but no, I did not pay a visit!

It was actually the old bomber that first drew my eye, and that is obviously not accidental.  You won’t find obvious signs like this anywhere near where tourists congregate in Nevada.  It’s kept very much under the surface in those places.  But out here in small-town Nevada, in the open desert, where you can also still find a few locally-owned small casinos with oddball characters holding up the bar, a little-talked about part of the old west survives.

  1. Love it! When we were in Albuquerque a few summers ago we saw a sign on a motel that said “refridgerator OR clean room”

Please don't be shy; your words are what makes my day!
