Lower Bristlecone Trail

IMG_4258

Just a short ride out to Lee Canyon from the Vegas Strip, and you will discover some beautiful hikes. The Lower Bristlecone Trail is an easy one, with a wide gravel path to enjoy. Along the way, I found pine trees, mountain views, fresh air, woodpeckers, pine cones, and deer. I highly recommend a drive out to Lee Canyon if you find yourself in the area.

Moonlight Adventure

IMG_1998

You know the kind.  Those nights when you think you are cool and can search around the local church building for some eerie photo opportunities.  The moon is shining brightly at first and then it seeks cover behind a blanket of clouds.  You walk out to the cemetery behind the church, and then your nerves kick in, even though you are still on the paved road, but very alone.  Every nighttime sound is a horror waiting to happen.  Your pace quickens as you return to the parking lot for one more photo and then a quick escape to the familiarity and comfort of your vehicle.  Whew!  That was exciting!
