Lake Las Vegas, not to be confused with Lake Mead

  1. JarieLyn, now this was a wholesome sharing of your area; thank you. Your camera lens is huge. Bet you're gaining on some muscle carrying that one around :)

    Happy Friday.

  3. I love your spots...even the ones you just listed without photographs. I made photographs in my imagination, not as good as your real ones. Nice camera, by the way. Bagman says, "What camera? I didn't notice a camera?"

  4. Fun stuff here. I never would have thought of a river as having a beach front. I guess there's never a shortage of space. There's always just more river up ahead. :)

  8. I was stunned by the photo of the Colorado River. I have rafted the rapids through the Grand Canyon on that river. It is much, much different, there. Fantastic post.
    Oh, by the way, now I am embarassed by my little point and shoot Kodak Easy-share. Thanks a lot!

  9. I love the pic of Sasha peeking her head over the sand. :)

    My gf lives in Vegas, works at the Venetian - she loves it! Of course, a move from Ohio to about anywhere else in the U.S. is usually infinitely better. I think she has mentioned Lake Las Vegas before -- beautiful photo!

    A former P.I., huh? Well, you've certainly lived a unique and different life than most of us, how cool is that... and girl, that is one serious camera lens there!!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog, and have a great weekend!

  12. You live in a place of great natural beauty; after the glitz of the city it must be so refreshing. Your camera (compared to mine) looks kind of intimidating!

  13. Fantastic post! You live in such a beautiful corner of the country--I love the red rocks and how every little lake and river feels like an exotic oasis in the middle of the desert. It makes you appreciate them more, no?

    Thanks for a great post :)

    Although you didn't photograph it, the Psychic Eye Book Store sounds like a place I'd like to visit.
