The second day we where contemplating as what to do. As stated we do not gamble so instead of heading to the casinos we went to see sights. Our first place to visit was Valley of Fire in the Mojave Desert. It is unbelievable that in the middle of the desert you can find these beautiful red rock formations. I will post several post from there as I did take so many photos of this colorful place.
These photos are from the drive through the “normal” Las Vegas desert with the mountains surrounding it beautifully. It does not look that spectacular, but if you look closely you can see beauty here too. What do you think, have I captured beauty of the desert?
I was in Vancouver, visiting my sister who is terminally ill, it has been emotionally hard visit. Due to that my blogging has been non existant.
The mountains around the area are so beautiful and looking at the natures beauty has calming effect which helped. These mountains and sea – aah, so lovely prior sunset.
These photos on from the tea country in Sri Lanka. I have such a burn to be somewhere warm, green…just to get away from winter. So I was going through my photos and… well here I am sharing you with my memories.
On the first part of the journey
I was looking at all the life
There were plants and birds and rocks and things
There was sand and hills and rings
The first thing I met was a fly with a buzz
And the sky with no clouds
The heat was hot and the ground was dry
But the air was full of sound
I’ve been through the desert on a horse with no name …
After two days in the desert sun
My skin began to turn red
After three days in the desert fun
I was looking at a river bed
And the story it told of a river that flowed

We do not have mountains in Finland, more like arctic hills. So mypictures of mountains have been shot in Sri Lanka near the tea country – in Kegalle.
