I’m trying to imagine the conversation: “You see we are building a very high-end, 11 billion dollar resort in Las Vegas and think your old canoe would look perfect out front.” Do you or your friends have anymore?”
It is a pretty cool statue, but seems more like something you would see in front of a resort in Jackson Hole or Whistler rather then Las Vegas.
Below are two of the new hotels in City Center. The pool belongs to the non-gaming hotel called the Vdara. Across the way is the much larger hotel and casino known as Aria. It is a bit hard to imagine, but on any given night there could be far more people in this one hotel, then living within 100 miles of my Alaska home. But then, that is one of the things that makes where we live so wonderful – and it is a place where you really can use a canoe!
