Daily Wanderlust: Love in the desert

Written by on March 29, 2012 in Destinations - 2 Comments

I’ve been talking a lot lately about the beauty of America’s desert southwest. Maybe it’s because I am trying to soak up as much as I can before I embark on the next journey.

Regardless, I’ve been going through photos of late and find myself staring at the untouched beauty in Utah, the reds and blues of the Hoover Dam and the deep orange hues found in the Valley of Fire.

Another beautiful spot to visit near Las Vegas? Red Rock Canyon. The outcropping of red rocks from the sand-colored mountains and the mint green brush makes for some seriously remarkable scenery. That, and the cacti.
