If you don't mind me asking, what airline is that? Those red wingtips got me...
I was thinking the same.

Oh nice man. When we were in Las Vegas, (we had 2 days there...) we decided to go to the Hoover Dam to see it, but after that we didn't have anything else to do. We could have gone to that sign... Oh well, there's always next year!
As an aside, you probably can't tell from the size of my photo, but I've made the trip to the invisible outskirts of "Area51." That's a picture of me next to a sign that says "Photography Prohibited." I've been there twice - one in 96 with my wife, and again in 2009 with then family (wife, and 3 children, 13, 11, and 10). You're not going to see anything, except magnificent desolation, but I still think it's a pretty cool trip. The best part is the final 5 or 10 miles is on a dirt road, with NOTHING around - you may not even see another car for an hour. Even th cows seem strange. As we were driving those last few miles, my kIds were getting creeped out, then my son says, "hey, I thought I saw something on that hill!" Then you make a little turn, and you reach the end, and what he saw was the security, who sit in a truck on a hill about 200 yards away. Just sitting there, watching from a distance. I tried to get everyone out so we could have a family picture in front of the sign, but everyone else was too creeped out. I did take a picture of the security - have 'em up on my FB page. It is kInd of cool for the kids to tell their friends they've been there, especially when a show about Area51 pops up on TV...they can also say the area looks NOTHING like the fictitious Area51 on "Independence Day."

I also think you have to be a special kind of dork to be willing to fly 7,000 miles to London to take a picture of a clock tower.
I think you have to be a special kind of dork to be willing to drive 2 hours into the middle of the high desert to take a picture of a sign.
