Mount Charleston, it was on the second day of our trip that we decided to refresh our memories from this place. It was worth the drive. We drove to Mt. Chaleston lodge that is hidden at elevation 7,000 feet among the juniper and sweet ponderosa pine of Kyle Canyon.
This was a little sight from the plane, flying above Rocky Mountain
These shots of Mt Baker were taken just before sunset
Standing in the desert you can see the a lonesome mountain, lonely bush and a mirage. Place Kap Verde – Sal Island-
