Super Grungy

I still have a few leftover photos from the other day, so I created this super grungy image. Yucky, eh? There are storm clouds all around my place at this moment, but not one drop has fallen at my place. The systems move generally north so I hope the dark clouds to the south will pass overhead soon. Water is life, right?

Some of you are familiar with that wall of rock in the distance, this is Charleston Boulevard well west of the city near Red Rock Canyon and Calico Basin. A flash flood warning has been issued for Las Vegas and surrounding areas until 1AM, that’s good news unless you are in the path of a flash flood!

In And Around Calico Basin

These photos were taken yesterday before the flash flood warning was issued for the Spring Mountains. The rain came over this area about four hours later, I can see the rain cells to the west of my home.

I wanted to get some photos of those adorable little Golden Mantled Ground Squirrels but they were once again not to be found. Apparently, they are very smart and hide somewhere from the powerful desert sun.

Perhaps underground in little tunnels, smart! There were no birds either in the area where I get the photos of the squirrels, not even a California Quail which I always see there.

I’ll have to wait until autumn to get those photos. How is your Thursday going?

A Leftover Sunset Photo

Actually, I have three or four more left over but that landscape shot is the last one from the other day outside of the city. It’s currently 108F with just eleven percent humidity as I write this next little post up. I almost cracked a sweat just walking to the mailbox and back a few minutes ago, whoa!

Another Sunset Photo and The Gloomy Desert

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.
