The night the lights went out in Vegas

The Hubmeister and I went down to the Strip to take part in Earth Hour last night. On Earth Hour hundreds of millions of people around the world will come together to call for action on climate change by doing something quite simple—turning off their lights for one hour. The movement symbolizes that by working together, each of us can make a positive impact in this fight, protecting our future and that of future generations. Last year, we watched from a distance, but this year, we decided to go down to the Strip to take part and basically make a Date Night out of it. I am sooooooooo glad we did. It was a trip to take pictures of the Strip before and during Earth Hour. It was eerie to see all of the lights go out like that.

Here are some of my favorites:

These two were taken as we were walking down the Strip to the walkway between the City Center and Planet Hollywood:

This is what it looked like at 832 PM PDST:

032710 Earth Hour Las Vegas 081

Kinda freaky, huh? :)

I have tons more pics, however, Flickr has a limit as to how much you can post per month. I will upload some more tomorrow and post a link to the album. (That and I'm just too lazy to do it right now :P).

And, this being Vegas, after the lights came back on, I managed to catch this little Moment of Zen:

032710 Earth Hour Las Vegas 101

I will see your People of Wal-Mart and raise you two Elvises and a Rick James!

Hope everyone had a good weekend! :)
