This is the Stratosphere Hotel in Las Vegas, NV. And yes, it is bigger than a tree. If you look closely at the top of the tower, you can see some stuff hanging off the top at the 11:00 and 5:00 positions. These are thrill rides where thrill-seeking people are thrilled by being thrillingly dangled over the edge of a very tall structure. For me -- not so thrilling. I am perfectly thrilled by standing on the ground and looking up.
For an opposite perspective, check out this link to Google Maps.
My picture is from the perspective of a guy on the ground shooting up at the sky. This one is from the perspective of a guy (satellite, guy, what's the difference?) shooting down. This gives you what could be the world's largest sun dial. Google Maps rocks!
