Coming Down the Mountain

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. ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐ŸŒด๐ŸŒต

The Mountain Church

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!!
