Back on The Rocks

Here are eight more rocky photos from the other day for ya, I need to go back out there next week! I’ve been talking and texting with the family today, so wonderful. I miss everyone too much. Most of us are back home in chilly Michigan, but one of my nieces is in California though, we are the west coast crew haha!

Deep-Fried Taters

Just a few little red taters, each diced into four pieces. Fry for as long as it takes for them to become just a bit more than golden brown and enjoy! Carb craving, satisfied. 😂😋

Beer and Chili

Beer and chili, an explosive combination! I whipped up this pot of chili very early this morning, I poured a tallboy into my new stein last night. A funny thing about drinking from that stein though, I felt as though I were back in the early 1980s drinking from a breast-shaped mug that had that same flavor that I can’t really describe. Something is different, perhaps it’s the lack of the familiar taste of beer from an aluminum can?

At Red Spring

Red Spring is along the boardwalk in Calico Basin. The sign tells the story of where the water comes from, I have seen this tiny flow move faster than this in years past, but the water is always flowing.

Neighborhoods, Las Vegas Style

Some of the neighborhoods in the valley are very extravagant and beautiful. These homes are what I think of as ‘midrange’ homes in terms of price point. Not far from here are homes that I believe are well over one million dollars, especially the area known as Summerlin. Big bucks homes that are well above my price point!

It’s still nice to look at them though…

A Couple Days Old

These five photos are from a couple of days ago, something different than the rocks of Calico Basin. The weather here today has been nothing short of beautiful, I wish it’d stay like this all winter…

Stroh’s Bohemian Beer Stein

I have never drunk beer from a stein as far as I can remember, but I’m going to pour some into this stein later today! I’ve tried to capture as much detail as I can in these photos.

Please visit Roadtirement’s blog and their Etsy store where I purchased this stein.

As you can see in a photo, the stein is numbered and part of a larger set, I wonder where it’s brother and sister mugs are these days? Stroh’s beer is made in Detroit, Michigan so I have a bit in common with this mug!

Petroglyphs Along The Boardwalk

One very large boulder along the boardwalk has these Petroglyphs on it, it’s amazing that they have been in this one location for so long. How cool would it be to be able to go backward in time to meet these people?
