Series on my trip to the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (USA) - NORTH AMERICA - Visiting LAS VEGAS, LAKE MEAD, HOOVER DAM, RED ROCK CANYON and the VALLEY OF FIRE (NEVADA), the GRAND CANYON - WEST AND SOUTH RIMS (ARIZONA), BRYCE CANYON, RED CANYON and ZION CANYON (UTAH), the DEATH VALLEY (CALIFORNIA) and finally CHICAGO (ILLINOIS) - From APRIL 05th to 24th, 2012 - # 128 !
HIGHWAY 93 !
LAKE MEAD! A LAKE IN THE MIDDLE OF PURE DESERTLAND!
Time to go back to LAS VEGAS! On our flight by plane back to Boulder City, one more flying over LAKE MEAD, but this time with another kind of light!
As a highlight here, HIGHWAY 93, the one I took some days later, to visit LAKE MEAD, HOOVER DAM and then head to the GRAND CANYON'S SOUTH RIM, some 400 km away from that point! I drove along HIGHWAY 93 down south to KINGMAN, where the road would go together with HIGHWAY 40, for a couple of kilometers, to the east. After that the two road would split and I'd take HIGHWAY 40 to the east until WILLIANS, where I'd finally take HIGHWAY 64, northbound to the magnificent GRAND CANYON'S SOUTH RIM!
Some others have been already posted by me on TE!
Take a look at some of them by clicking HERE , HERE and HERE , or visit my LAS VEGAS or GRAND CANYON galleries HERE and HERE !
Now we can post larger images, so take a look at this comparison: West & Chicago n] 16 - BREATHTAKING !
As I truly didn't know it could me the one and only time over there, I decided to take the most complete tour over the Grand Canyon nearby Las Vegas!
First a van from Las Vegas to Boulder City. Second a flight from Boulder City to the GRAND CANYON'S WEST RIM. After that, a helicopter flight over that NATURAL WONDER, going down to the COLORADO RIVER! There, a boat ride! Then, a flight back to the edges of the Canyon to visit some places, such as the Grand Canyon Skywalk with some lunch served over there! Finally, all the way back to Las Vegas by plane and van again! It was certainly totally worthwhile and very enjoyable!

beautiful landscape and high POV,which allows us to enjoy it from a completely new perspective.I like its barren,raw beauty.
Have a nice day

Une autre intéressante vue aérienne sur ce paysage, la luminosité accentue l'effet de relief et excellent effet aussi avec ces route rectiligne qui traverse ce lieu désert.

une très belle vue du ciel sur ce paysage désertique; l'effet de la lumière sur le relief est très intéressant, et crée un graphisme agréable.

The aerial viewpoint allows us to fully appreciate the vastness of the landscape with is strangely rippling hills. The highway well placed in the frame offers a sense of scale and helps creat depth for the composition.

taken from an aeroplane this is remarkably sharp and very clear with good colours.
It is a spectacular landscape with the road well placed across the vertical corners .
Best regards Les.

I see this is a continuing of your previous and next photo. This place reminds me a giant construction plant. Impressive channels of the dried rivers or just a storm water drain? ;) Excellent photo series from a plane.
Best wishes from Russia!
