I’m officially living in California now. The drive wasn’t too bad. I left Thursday night and drove to St. George, UT for the evening, then left at 7am MST. I got to LA around noon PST. I don’t think I’m used to the time change yet, because I can’t shake this feeling of being absolutely exhausted.
I’ve been to the beach twice already and this morning I went to the LA County Fair. Unfortunately, I did not take any pictures. Mostly because I didn’t have my camera. I guess I did take one with my phone at the fair, but it was of some artwork because I thought it looked awkward.
But here are goodies from the trip! And now that I’m settled, I’ll be able to update on a schedule again.
This is Mesquite, NV. It’s literally RIGHT outside of Arizona. Since NV is known for Las Vegas and gambling, you better believe they had a casino within a stones throw of the border. I love the lighting in these photos. People always get photos during sunset, but not as many for sunrise.
I don’t know if all of you have seen the giant windmills that are in the midwest and western states, but this is one of the arms/wings. Sooo giant, it’s almost unbelievable how much bigger the body must be.
I also don’t know how many of you have seen Joshua Trees, but I’ve always been intrigued by them and so I tried to get some pictures…that I took while driving out the window, so this isn’t, ya know, professional type pictures. They look prehistoric. You can see them a little better here, but I mean they are some sweet lookin’ trees.
So I figured I oughtta take some photos while going through Vegas. There’s not that much to see during the morning hours. It doesn’t look nearly as impressive than at night. So the biggest photo that looks like it’s just of a road is the first view you get of Vegas coming down the I-15. You can kind of see that there may or may not be a city in that valley during the day, but at night it’s all lit up and super cool.
And here we go! Beautiful mountains, then look at that smog in the 2nd photo…Well, hellooo California!
