Photos from Las Vegas Stratosphere

The Stratosphere Tower, started by the late, great Bob Stupak, dominates the skyline on the northern Strip.

The casino at the Stratosphere has a few low roller games, a few gimmick games held over from Stupak's days, and is generally on par with other mid-level north Strip properties.

The Stratosphere has two pools, with this being the smaller of the two. It's also higher, since it is atop the hotel. The other is on top of the casino and is more interesting and has better landscaping.
