A few years ago, Mrs.5000 and I drove through Las Vegas, which is kind of like going to the mall but on a much larger scale. Oh, and the mall is on fire -- the visibly declining air quality as you approach the city from southwestern Utah is pretty alarming.
For the most part, the charms of the city were lost on us, but I did make an excited hard left turn when I happened to spot a fenced-off area of a few square blocks along a road a few miles from the city center.
This turned out to be the "sign boneyard," a dumping ground for old neon and electric signs.
Mrs.5000 & I went right to work!
And spent a happy half-hour or more taking photos of the splendid decay.
