Beautiful Nevada

 Valley Of Fire State Park (You can click on the pictures to see them full size)

A lot of people like to talk about how miserable this state is.  Particularly after the horribly hot summer we just had (are still having?  It was 94 today).  I must admit I often wish there were are few more trees around or at least an ocean BUT Nevada does have it's great qualities.  I was looking through old pictures and have stumbled across a few that really capture how great The Silver State is.  Here they are!

A beautiful campsite on BLM land near Searchlight, NV

Another BLM campsite at Wee Thump Joshua Tree Forest.  The largest old growth Joshua Tree forest in the world.

Not my best picture but a great one of a favorite trail on BLM Land outside of Red Rock National Conservation Area

  1. Great shots. I am sure there is more good than bad but one thing it does make us realise we should be so thankful for our green and pleasant land even when it is raining outside. Have a tremendous Thursday.
