It’s a fourteen mile drive to the valley floor from the top of Lee Canyon, or close to that anyway. It’s interesting to watch the types of vegetation change as you descend the mountain slope, the Joshua Trees seem to populate at and below 4000 feet as do the Yucca. Then come the Creosote bushes and so on, the variety becomes much more Mojave Desert and less Alpine altitudes vegetation. And that temperature change, whooa!!! From 69 degrees to 101 degrees in a few short miles. 🔥🌴🌵
Just a sign, but with a beautiful view far away and high above!
That’s my first thought about this rock formation. The only extinct volcanoes I know of remotely close to the Spring Mountains are just south of Baker, California.
I’m sorry but they remind me of boobs! 😂😎
Heading home from the mountain the other day on the 95 freeway, a dust devil swirled it’s way from west to east across the road. I tried for the shots before I passed it but the damn camera didn’t fire! So, all I got was this poopy photo. You can see it a bit though in both areas of the glass. This was a really tall devil!
One photo looking east toward Frenchman Mountain snuck into this set. Are you tired of the Vegas Strip photos yet? 😎
Ended up with these random photos… That’s what I do while watching the tube and having a brew. Fun aye!
I was pleasantly surprised to see this sunset going on last night! I thought to walk to the backyard and check with the 35mm lens on the Nikon. Sweet! I did very little processing to these images.
Welcome to the top of Lee Canyon! Have you ever skied this mountain?
Hello Palazzo, I’ve never visited you.
If ya can’t do the time dammit, then don’t do the crime. Throw the key away… And the T shirt.
Once you reach the cabins and restaurant on Kyle Canyon Road, your as high as you can drive. From here you’ll find two trailheads. I wish I had the health to be able to climb to the summit of Mount Charleston.
Here are nine more photos from a short ride down the big boulevard the other day. Details man, details…
I love this church. I love all churches actually but this one is so rustic and beautiful! Add to this the magnificent backdrop and you’ve got a church folks will come to maybe just for the view! Well, I hope they come to worship the Lord of course! Taking Kyle Canyon Road west when leaving the 95 freeway behind you, you’ll pass this beautiful church on your right when heading west. The Mount Charleston Lodge is just across the street too. They recently spent several million dollars in upgrades to the entire place so the next time I’m up there I better stop for a look, and have some lunch! Mountain Love! Nevada Love!!
