Motorcycles In The Desert

The Red Rock Overlook is a busy place with tourists and locals alike stopping by for photos and meeting up. There is a group of local bikers that meet here regularly. They have a beautiful place to hang out, don’t they? Sunny and 75 degrees today in the valley, I’ll take it!

Accidents and Fire Trucks

Those two photos are from today and honestly, I am surprised that there aren’t more accidents in Vegas. The firetruck must have got a call for help since the lights came on suddenly and the driver made a hard left turn. The other photos are from the other day in the Spring Mountains. It’s currently 72F degrees in the valley.

Wind Assault

Yesterday was just another windstorm but this one had some vicious gusts in it as the video shows. My previous post showed just how thick the dust was yesterday. Nothing is covered in a thick layer of sand this morning! Partly cloudy and 77 degrees are forecast for today, this latest storm pulled the daytime temperature down ten or so degrees. The photo was taken with the iPhone the other day, the video with the Nikon.

Corn On The Cob and Parking Lot Flowers

There were four cobs of corn and boy did I inhale them the other day! The tree flowers were photographed at a gas station/grocery store which is an actual grocery store only about 1/3 the size of your usual store. Yum!

The weather here today is insane! It was dead calm this morning but I knew a windstorm was heading our way at eleven or so this morning and it was a bit late!

Well, it has arrived and once again my house is crackling, the porch light on a chain swinging madly in the crazy wind. Then, I get a new weather alert stating that a dust storm will envelop the valley between 2 and 4 PM today. Wow man, I’m no longer in Michigan!

Happy Mother’s Day, Mom!

You have been gone ten years, my heart still cries for you, mother. We love you so much! This photo of mom is in my living room, I see my mom every day and so wish that I could give her a big hug and kiss her little head. And, listen to her sweet voice. Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms from Las Vegas Photoblog.

Let’s Go Back To The Desert

After a soft sunset, we head back out of town to where the Joshua Trees are with their seed pods. 85 degrees and yet another high wind warning today with gusts to 50 between 11AM and 11PM today. I’m just blown away at how windy 2022 has been so far. The winds greatly increase the risk of fire danger which sucks.

Cuteness Overload!

Since I was in Calico Basin the other day, I of course must photograph my cute little friends called Golden Mantled Ground Squirrels! Those little hands and feet are tiny, this time I was armed with proper seeds for the squirrels instead of tossing peanuts. The squirrels prefer the larger black seeds which are sunflower seeds, not sure, and the rest of the seeds are perfect for the many birds that live there. Learn more about this squirrel.
