Steward Ave, the main road running across Fremont St. is named after Helen Stewart, the women who originally owned the land and water rights to what became Las Vegas. She sold to William Clark for $55k, (1.4 million today). (Chronicles of Old Las Vegas)

Looming over the strip like a bird of prey, but there is no attack in the agenda today. Instead, a leisurely stroll through the sky.

Thank you helicopter and @_lucky45 for your aerial arousals.
