Happy New Years Day friends, I hope you’ve had a fine transition into the new year. This morning I took a ride to one of my many favourite places near and around Red Rock Canyon for a few photos. I used the Sigma 10-20mm lens for these photos. There are Yucca and Joshua along with rocks and Caliche in these photos. So what is Caliche?
This very hard substance is created over thousands and more years through calcification which acts like a kind of concrete. If your building a home or installing a pool on your property here in Las Vegas and are unfortunate enough to come across this nasty customer, expect your costs to escalate by a good bit. This stuff is really tough and must be air-hammered out of the way.
Just another thing to know about living in the Mojave Desert! The weather has been so wonderful the last few days, we are enjoying plenty of sunshine and temps in the mid sixties during the day whilst the eastern side of the States is buried in a seriously bad deep freeze.
I hope it’s warm where you are this New Years Day. More to come in this photo set.
