Foothill Homes

Taken yesterday at the little park, you can see how homes have crept into any buildable area on the slopes of the west side. This has me wonder how new homes can continue to be built considering the current state of things. Are there enough jobs here to afford these homes? I sure hope so!

Today’s Joyride

Here are four photos taken this afternoon on another joyride as I call them. Basically just getting the hell out of the house for a bit. Today is the clearest sky I’ve seen around here for several days now, and almost zero clouds too. nice! It’s not as warm today as the weather service claimed it would be which is nice.

When the temperature becomes more autumn-like, I will be taking some slow hikes around Calico Basin and other areas. Great photo opportunities, and great for the body! I really need the exercise too…

Red Rock Canyon Proper

In this image, you are looking west and at what I believe is the east end of the canyon proper. You can not see the canyon as it’s only visible when in front of you. Basically a major cut or gash on the surface of the desert. It’s huge, really huge, and worth the entry fee into this BLM managed park which also has a thirteen mile very scenic and beautiful drive. At the moment, I don’t know what the entry fee is though, sorry.
