The Biggest Little City in the World gets a Little Hairy

Reno is the armpit of Nevada.

Full of hardcore gamblers, aging casinos and tacky wedding chapels, Reno bills itself as the “The Biggest Little City in the World” when in reality its the cheap, downmarket version of Las Vegas. The best thing about Reno is that Lake Tahoe is right over the hill.

As you can tell I’m no fan of Reno, Nevada.

I happen to be there back in September for a work related conference so I was forced to spend a couple of days there.

The photograph isn’t tack sharp due to high winds that were kicking up that evening. It also didn’t help that drunk bums kept running into my tripod (I just made up that last part). Actually, I wish there were drunk bums walking around because downtown was completely devoid of people.

Blame the bad economy or the simple fact that Reno is an armpit.

Happy Travels! Just stay away from Reno!
