CSI: Crime Scene Investigation ostensibly takes place in and around Las Vegas. I watch it very infrequently, but in some of the episodes I have scene there are scenes shot in wooded locations.
Now, all of the times I’ve been to Las Vegas, I’ve stayed in the city. Driving there took me through a couple-hundred miles of desert. Flying was by Cessna, so altitudes were 9,500 or 10,500 feet (or lower). You can see a long way from a little airplane, and all I saw was desert. The mountains are pretty barren, too.
I know that the show is filmed in California. But if it’s supposed to take place in Las Vegas, where are these wooded areas supposed to be?
