Wednesday Wonders

Welcome back to my

From the edge of the desert,
successfully mapped.
(Of course, I still use maps.}

The place is Nevada, 
where many folks head to Las Vegas.
But there is so much more waiting to be explored 
even just 16 miles away from Las Vegas.

One of my favorite Nevada destinations.

Red Rock Canyon


and day in the desert.

Words will never explain the total peace 
that one feels anywhere in the desert. 
You must experience for yourself.
You only need to live one sunset.

"The desert, when the sun comes up,

I couldn't tell you where
 heaven stopped and the Earth began."
Tom Hanks

I'm a grateful person for having a grandfather
(that after long consideration) decided to make the desert his new home,
 when my father was just twelve. 

How about a bit of humor to our adventure?
 Shall we send in the clowns?

Going north about three hundred miles from Las Vegas is 
Tonopah, Nevada.

Clown Motel

Another comfort from the desert,
"All sunshine makes the desert."
Arabian Proverb

I hope you enjoyed a bit of clowning around today.
Enjoy your adventures and take good care of you.

Today I'll be happier than a bird with a french fry.
Cuz I'm one cool cat!
Look out squirrels!

It's been a long time since I was out west in Arizona, actually, where there's also desert. I love the lush green of Wisconsin, but there's something really special about the desert too. Such a different and amazing landscape.

I think the peace that you feel in your desert would be very similar to what we would experience in what we call in Australia the 'outback'.. Not sure about the clowns Karen 😀😀
