This place is about hour and half away from Las Vegas and it baffles me that even the locals do not visit it that often. Lovely , cooler nature sanctuary form the hotness of the town. 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.
I love the beautiful Birch tree woods you can spot here and there, not too often so that you will be numbed to their beauty
it is all green and cloudy, but wouldn’t this be lovely, I does not look to promising that we will have snow anytime soon if you look at the forecast . The theme of blue and white continues
As we arrived we had to walk through old woods, and rocky paths. As the wind mostly blows from the sea nearly all the trees lean towards inland. The first part of the walk is rather dark and this area has lots of fallen down spruce trees. They are left in the woods to decay as nature intended so the nature will continue to be as diverse as possible.
Yesterday was a beautiful day and I visited Porkkalanniemi in Southern Finland and took some photos of the beautiful landscapes we have we have there. So in the coming days I will be posting photos I took there,I hope you enjoy them.
