This Saturday I spent a lovely afternoon hiking in Red Rock with some of my very favorite people in the entire world. I seriously love the Slow Poke Hikes that this awesome lady leads with the Hiking Las Vegas Group.
It was another beautifully clear day in Las Vegas. The sky was seriously that blue. I don't use filters. I don't have a fancy cameras. 98% of the photos you see on this blog are taken with my (or Adam's) iPhone. Occasionally, I use my Fujifilm XP (we purchased it to have a waterproof / shock proof option).
We started out at the White Rock trailhead and pretty much headed straight up the mountain. Our goal was one of the peaks in the center of the White Rock loop. The trail isn't necessarily obvious, but it is well cairned.
|Cairns are man-made stacks of rocks that often mark the path.|
|I couldn't get enough of the views of Calico Hills in the background!|
We were purposely bringing up the rear to make sure everyone was together and feeling good. This also provided us with lots of opportunities for goofy photo shoots. For example, doesn't it look like I"m living dangerously in the below picture? Well....the drop-off was really only about 3 feet (at most). I'm kind of a big wimp when it comes to exposure. I'm working on it, but I'm kind of attached to breathing and my bones not being broken.
