Yes, it's late. I drove for five hours yesterday and didn't manage my time effectively so as to maintain the continuous stream of free content on my site. You may have your money back.
This photo was taken in mid 1996, I think. Perhaps 1995. In South Lake Tahoe, NV. Maybe the California side. Film, obviously. Kodak 400 most likely since I lived on that stuff.
The hotel no longer stands. Or maybe it does, but the marquee certainly doesn't. Tahoe didn't weather its transition into the modern day very well. Lots of the old charm was lost, all to chase kind of a second-rate regional gambling destination status. You could make the same argument for Reno, too. Hell, Vegas has lost a lot of what it was, but it's still horrifyingly interesting today.
