Desert versus Glitz

My last day in Nevada I went through the desert to Pahrump, Nevada to see my cousins. It was about 60 miles northeast of Las Vegas and into the desert. It was a beautiful trip to see so much nothingness. I saw three signs, one for a donkey crossing, one for cows and one for mountain goats. These are Mesquite trees.

Immediately north of the Red Rock Casino resort was Red Rock canyon. I caught the mountains with the sun at a good time of day.
It was so pretty that when I got back and Michael was done I took him about 8 miles out to see the canyon.
Here are the lights of Las Vegas at night. Just to the right of the moon is the light beam from the pyramid casino that can be seen from space. It's quite a sight from our motel room.
This was the motel. But you know what, I think I like the beauty of the desert than the glitzy lights of amazing buildings built on the gambling losses of thousands of people!
