A Bridge In The Desert

Bridges here cross the myriad of Washes (natural drainage channels) that are everywhere in the Mojave Desert. Have a look at Google Earth or similar and note the spider-like legs or drainage channels that go in many directions from the mountain peaks. Las Vegas has mile upon mile of man-made (of course) drainage channels to help direct as much water away from homes and businesses. And of course, the Las Vegas Strip.

  1. I had not realized about all of the web of drainage ditches. With Las Vegas being so dry I clearly have overlooked all the water that could come off of the mountains. I like this series of photos John especially the first with an unknown around the corner.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
