This was the beginning of the trip south to visit the Seven Magic Mountains the other day. The weather here is starting to heat up finally with 97F today and 100F tomorrow. Bring on the heat, my new air conditioning system installed last summer is ready!
In case you’ve wondered what Las Vegas looks like heading north on the 15 freeway, here you go. Be super careful driving anywhere in Vegas, the 15 freeway has plenty of accidents which sucks. I jumped off the 15 and picked up the 215 westbound which becomes the 215 northbound after a few miles. If you want to head up to Utah and further north, just stay on the 15. Honestly, I despise driving here with all of the dipshits who should surrender their driver’s license at the DMV and take the bus. Just being honest! My driving record is clean…
I very much detest graffiti, it’s a blight in any large American city and sadly in the middle of nowhere too. My punishment for this is not fit for publishing, a slap on the wrist is all these hooligans apparently ever get which is pure bullshit. The dust devil is actually a very long way southeast of the Magic Mountains, the Nikkor 18-140mm lens did a darn good job of pulling in much closer. The dust devil is likely a dry lakebed.
I haven’t been to this large piece of art in at least two years so I figured a trip down there is better than watching reruns on TV today, such a beautiful day! I took around three dozen photos of these brilliantly painted rocks stacked upon each other.
So, you are in for a bunch of boulders with lovely colors on them, and unfortunately, too much graffiti too. Punks with spray paint should be beaten. The website will tell you all that you need to know about the origin of this project.
The trip down and back was around 80 miles, not a quick trip but worth it on a beautiful sunny day about thirty or so miles south of Las Vegas along the fifteen freeway. I removed many people from these photos.
Yes, just one more sunset photo last eve, the colors are popping nicely in this one too. I did a great job of dirtying up Rainbow Mountain too, thanks to Photoscape X on the MacBook.It’s been beautiful today with the temperature hanging around 70 degrees, I’ve been pruning the bushes out front throughout the day. All that’s left to be done is to scuffle hoe the rocks to make them look less sunk into the ground around the palm tree.
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.
A mix of photos, the sign on the mountain says that I am a long way from home, the other photos were worked over yesterday afternoon using three different photo applications. Partly sunny and 93 degrees are forecast for the valley today, that’s getting up there but it cools back to the 80s for tomorrow. Happy Saturday!
