Vegas Eye: Hmmm? Do I detect a certain odor?

Thanks for the e-mail memos sent this week to Vegas Eye inquiring about the recent gap in the Vegas Eye puzzles. Other projects simply overwhelmed the editorial team this month. But in honor of the start of Flash Flood season in Las Vegas…. I’ll be posting a bonus round tomorrow as well! This location is pretty amazing on many levels and good olfactory senses might not be a benefit herein!

What exactly are we looking at here?

1- Where is this?
2- How long has it been here and… is the title of this puzzle justified in this case?

To make sure we have a quick “winner” today — here’s a bonus view and a couple of bonus questions…

Is that real grass?

3) Is that real grass?
4) Is it possible that detect more than one savory aroma in this spot? How many would you guess?

If this proves to be too easy…. there are still lots of unfinished Vegas Eye puzzles awaiting your expertise… Click here to see the most recent ones.

  1. Hey, this looks like fun. I look forward to the answer…though I suspect it is near Blue Diamond and Durango so the odds of me ever going are slim… hehe

  2. Troy, Nice to see you back here!

    It’s not at Blue Diamond or Durango, but it is (slightly) south of the I-215 but much closer to the I-15

  3. Western Trails Park on Rogers Street. Opened November 2005. Smell could be from BBQ pit or horses.

  4. Yep, both of those aromas are possible, but the one I was going for was more imagined than anything else. Those western-themed buildings are actually the rest rooms, if you catch my drift.

    But good work!
