Las Vegas Smog | Gloomy Yellow Day in Vegas

December in Las Vegas... some snow and some smog.

Driving into North Las Vagas and on to Downtown Las Vegas is a bit scary when this is the first view seen. We had seen snow in Las Vegas the week before and the mountains had a good coating...but this was the view driving back into Las Vegas from the northern mountains on December 26, 2006.

A yellow haze coated the valley and all we could see clearly was the Winn and the Stratosphere Hotels. It looked like a yellow sulphur haze but without the smell.

Traffic was light that day, and we didn't see any heavy costruction along the way. The cold was keeping this Las Vegas smog down at sea level.
