Desert around Vegas

Getting to Utah last week, we flew into Vegas, cut through a corner of Arizona before driving the full state south to north. As usual, flying into Vegas, the scenery is always beautiful!

I love how the lakes winds between the mountains and the different color layers in the rocks.

No boats out on the lake today.

A big swath of rocks had a beautiful red coloring to them.

This area of Earth here looked like it had been crinkled and wrinkled in such a supernatural way.

The (west?) end of the lake had these finger-like valley areas and some funky coloring to the crevasses.

Here is the big mountain just outside the city proper. Gotta love the way airplane windows distort the images.

One little oasis of a river with a bit of greenery.

Viva Las Vegas! (Sorry- couldn't resist)

This was about as much as I saw of the town, we hopped on I-15 and headed North.

GOOD NEWS OF THE DAY: It's Friday & we're going camping with friends!

That's my usual view of Vegas, too ... the airport.

Oh you have to go back to Nevada and Utah and spend some time there. I love the area to hike, camp, etc. Just gorgeous. You just have to remember to bring LOTS of water, no matter what time of year. The dryness and heat just suck it out of you. Lovely photos!
