Valley of Fire, part 3

Bighorn Sheep posing for the camera was another high point of my visit to Valley of Fire in Nevada. The sheep didn’t seem to mind those of us who eagerly pointed our cameras. ~SueBee

Valley of Fire, part 2

My fascination with this area of natural beauty, Valley of Fire near Mesquite, Nevada, continues in the below gallery. The petroglyphs were so interesting, and luckily, the design of the staircase that kept us a good distance away from the rocks meant very few people were able to deface them. ~SueBee

Valley of Fire, part 1

The Road Trip with my friends Aranka and George started in earnest on Monday, May 24th. We left Pahrump and drove out Interstate Highway 15 toward Mesquite, Nevada, and turned onto the Valley of Fire Highway. It’s quite a drive through arid desert hills before reaching the Valley of Fire Nevada State Park entrance… and […]

On the Road Again, part 2

I arrived in Pahrump late afternoon on a recent Saturday, with plans to head out on the road on Monday. So, Sunday was a day of checking out some scenes in the Pahrump area. We stumbled on rock climbers near Mt Potosi (the site of a TWA plane crash in 1942 that killed 22 people, […]

Snow in the Desert

Today I have guest pictures from my friend of many decades, Aranka, who lives in Pahrump, Nevada. The first picture was taken out her breakfast room window, the other two as she and her husband, George, drove to Las Vegas. The pictures are beautiful, but also quite a stand-out when you factor in where they […]

Is it a Mirage?

I spent the weekend in Pahrump, Nevada, visiting my friends, Aranka and George. Aranka and I have known each other since the early 1970’s. It’s been nice catching up since she and George moved from Northern California to Pahrump, much closer to my home. It’s “only” about 250 miles. While exploring the desert area between […]

Cathedral Canyon

(17 photos) While visiting friends, Aranka and George, in Pahrump, Nevada earlier this year, they toured me to some fascinating places. With Pahrump, being situated between Death Valley, California, and Las Vegas, Nevada, some might think there’s nothing to see. Wrong! The area is dotted with interesting, unusual sights, one of which I’m featuring in […]

Scaling Red Rock

(8 photos) Rock climbing Red Rock is very popular. I found it fascinating to watch, thanks to my zoom lens, as my friends gave me a tour of the area recently. It’s a sport requiring skill, endurance, patience, determination, and I would imagine finger strength (?!). ~SueBee

Spectacular Red Rock Canyon

During my visit to Pahrump, Nevada, last week, my friends toured me through the Red Rock Canyon area. To say it’s spectacularly beautiful is an understatement. I hope to return one day for some hiking as I’m sure the views from the top must be even more incredible. ~SueBee

Road Trip

After returning home from Kat’s wedding in Julian (a couple hours south from home), I collapsed into bed, and then got up to hit the road again. My destination would be a town called Pahrump in the Nevada desert, about an hour northwest of Las Vegas, new home of a long-time friend. I headed out […]
