Favorite Picture of the Week

I've said before that living in the desert is strange from where I grew up in California because there aren't as many tree's, grass or foliage as there was in California when I was little. But we do have an interesting landscape for sure. These 3 pictures were taken out at Red Rock Las Vegas. And as you can see some of those rocks and mountains out there are red. 

It's a desert landscape so if you visit there you aren't going to see a lot of big tree's like you'd see in the mountains but there are some small bushes and cactus.

Because it gets so hot here in the summer 117F I never liked going hiking in the summer but it's nice to pick a trail in the fall or Winter months and take a hike.

  1. Unfortunately, it really was 117 degrees last time I was there. It would be nice to visit during the winter months.

  7. I'd rather visit in the winter to see, 117 would make me flee.

  11. Such wonderful red colors. I've got pictures from Utah like that. And yes, I am not a heat person so I would be a winter trail walker if I lived down that way.

    Thanks for sharing these!

  12. So gorgeous. I'm with Sophia and have some pics of Utah that are similar. I do like my trees, though. lol Amazing how different landscape is from one side of the country to the other.

  14. It's pretty! Although in a very different way from other landscapes. I never lived in a place like that, so it's hard to imagine having no trees around.
