I really need to remember to explore my city.
Oftentimes, when I am jaded by my normal routine, I’ll get this killer urge to travel somewhere far, far away. Only to see something new! See something different!
Well, this view, captured on my iPhone, was only about a 40 minute drive from my house. And isn’t it beautiful?!
We were at Mt. Charelston, where it can actually be a good place to be when it’s hot in the city.
While forecasts for Las Vegas said 101°F, the high at Mt. Charleston that day was 73°F.
Actually, it was probably even cooler with winds coming down from the mountain that were really cool. In the shade of tall rocks-it was extremely refreshing. Not to mention, I got some exercise! Yea! Win-win!
I was also just so captivated by these translucent, pink, desert flowers!
My 15 year old cousin, on the other hand, was captivated by the sight of a butterfly. Not something you really find on the strip.
Really wish I had a clearer shot, but you get what you get with me and my iPhone.
Is there somewhere you like to go to cool down from the Vegas heat? Or get away from the city scene? If so, where do you go?
