Colour & Texture

More photos from yesterday as I slowly moved through the Red Rock Scenic Drive which is about twelve miles total length. As I drove through the entrance yesterday, I noticed a paper sign taped to the drive-thru pay booth. It seems (best as I could glean) some folks in Congress dropped the ball, hence no payment was needed to enter this BLM fee area. And I just purchased a one year annual pass!

At Red Rock Canyon

A set of ten photos taken at Red Rock Canyon proper earlier today. I’d have stopped to get some photos looking down into the actual canyon itself but every parking space was taken, as it was at the next parking area. They (park rangers) are very strict about parking only in the designated parking areas! So I moved on but darn I wanted to stop.

Too bad I can’t walk down there but I’d need a stretcher to get back up with my heart condition remembered. Anyway, I’ve got more photos of rocks for you. Are you tired of seeing my rocks! More to come in this set. I took a couple shots with the iPhone to send to my daughter back in Michigan. She loves the scenery here and is so tired of another Michigan winter. Me too…

Let It Go…

I’m going to be perfectly honest here (not that I’m not honest with you always), this Michael Jackson Tribute Concert as it’s billed kind of irks me. I remember jamming Jackson’s music on my turntable in my bedroom years ago when living at home with the folks yet. He had a fabulous career and was a hell of a performer. But good Lord, the man died terribly in 2009. Let him go, stop using his name to make money. So cheesy man…

The Angry Canyon

Heading home this morning from a trip to just East of the Strip, I noticed the canyon to my West was looking wet and angry, a rain squall was moving into the area. What’s odd though is that it all seemed to just stall and stay out there just West of my area of town. I didn’t feel like driving out there though so no decent photos were taken. Just this one, processed to look old and maybe a bit angry. I hope your weekend is good!
