North Strip Volksmarch

I decided to walk the 11k North Strip volksmarch to see how thing were going on that part of the Strip.  There were plenty of signs thanking everyone for their support over the past week as well as a memorial that just sort of sprung up at the corner of Las Vegas Boulevard and Sahara.

South Strip Volksmarch

I walked the South Strip volksmarch today not knowing what to expect.  Five days ago the largest mass shooting in American history took place on the south Las Vegas Strip.  I had been planning to do this 11k walk on Monday morning until some lunatic shot up the Strip and changed the lives of so many innocent people.  I was surprised to see that the area looked so "normal" with tourists all over the place and people going about their regular business at the restaurants, casinos, and businesses along the Strip.  It may have been a bit more low key and had somewhat fewer tourists than usual but the walk was nice nonetheless.  p.s. The little green monsters are part of Bellagio's Halloween decorations in the Conservatory.
