They Paved Paradise And Put Up A Water Park

This is the closest thing I have to a long-term series.

I live in the extreme South West of the Vegas Valley.  We have our housing development, and then there is desert.  Then some mountains.  It’s fantastic.

So, around August, 2011, they started bulldozing the place.  I started taking pictures of the progress.

The project has been going through stops and starts.  It laid dormant for a long time.  Now, it seems, it’s full speed ahead.  It’s scheduled to open on Memorial Day, 2013.

They just might make it.
