Dunes Implosion 3of3

Classic Vegas Gone

Covered with dust from the explosion I watched with a tear in my eye, as another city landmark was destroyed. I put a my cameras in the plastic bags to protect them from the dust and started the long depressing trek home, through the traffic jam in the Barbary Coast parking lot and the large crowds in the streets. I remember thinking at the time that Steve Wynn was going to remake this whole town in his own image if he wasn't stopped.....guess what...he did! - RSH
