Beautiful Places - Part 1

There are sooooo many beautiful places out there to explore.  I thought I'd share some pics taken along highway 167 running along the west/north side of the Lake Mead National Recreation Area.

Late afternoon sun.

So many pretty spots, and not nearly enough time or places to pull over to take pictures!

There was one place called Redstone that was simply gorgeous, I got some pics of the back side of it, but there was a vehicle that pulled in there just ahead of me.  They were rude and scary drivers, and I didn't want to get too close to them so I had to drive on.  *pouty face*

There were so many colors in the rock and the golden rays of the sun were bathing them in such beautiful velvety shadows.  

It just makes you want to stay and take pic after pic!  Gorgeous!  If you haven't already been there, I hope you get a chance to visit!  If you have been, perhaps it's time to go back!

I never did see any of the wild horses that the ranger said roam around there.  But, maybe next time!  However, as I was driving through Riverside, UT, I did a double take.  I saw a big dark shape moving in the weeds on the side of the road.  A bird.  A LARGE bird.  A large, dark colored bird . . . with . . . things sticking out of the top of it's head.  I couldn't get stopped to take a pic, but wish I could have, because it's not every day you see a peacock foraging along the side of the road around here!  I did turn around and go back, but . . .  I guess he was camera shy, I couldn't find him again!  Well, that's it for now!  See you later! ! !
