Ditch Construction

More roadwork! Yay for living in a larger city, right? Back home, there was very occasional traffic congestion and having to be wary of Whitetail Deer leaping across the road in front of you.

Yeah, I hit one in 1998, a really crappy experience. Anyway, this stuff goes with the territory and is a tiny backup obviously. It’s sunny and 89 degrees just now by the way. Another perfect day!

Taco Monday

Here are six photos taken late this morning on the way to and from Roberto’s Taco Shop. It’s yet another beautiful day in the valley today, the 80s are coming later this week.

Still very nice weather but I’ll miss these perfect days over the winter months. My Michigan hometown will 50s and 40s this week, Las Vegas will see the 80s as mentioned, but cooling into the 70s soon.

The 70s will seem a bit too cool for this seasoned desert rat…

Big Views, Cacti and A Closed Play Area

Here’s another children’s play structure that has been locked down. I hate this damn virus, it’s stolen so much from all of us. Just don’t go playing around in the Barrel Cacti, children… The view of the foothills was taken from the upper deck walkway, looking west. The two-fifteen freeway is in front of those tightly-packed homes. That’s how we do it here, my home is very close to my neighbors on either side. Squish!

Casinos at State Line, Nevada

State Line, also known as Primm, Nevada is a border town right on the border between Nevada and California. I’ve not been down there in a couple of years though probably, should I have a ride down there again? That would be a nice ride and a good way to get out of this house. While I’m at it, why not hit the Seven Magic Mountains too?

An Old Visit to Hoover Dam

I’m pulling out the old photos this morning, going back at least two years with these photos. I wonder if the dam has reopened to the public yet? It’s always nice to visit Hoover Dam!
