Anyone who flies in an airplane and doesn’t spend most of his time looking out the window wastes his money.
– Marc Reisner, Cadillac Desert
My Southwest flight into Las Vegas was nearly empty (a rarity these days), so I had my choice of window seats on either side of the plane and the chance to move back and forth. But the pilot’s descent into Las Vegas was literally directly over Hoover Dam, so we couldn’t see it.
Nice view of all the Lower Basin’s water in Lake Mead, though, just waiting for someone at the Bureau of Reclamation to turn the spigot and send it downstream to grow lettuce or water a golf course. Looks like plenty of water to me!
