Our Beautiful World Week 37 ~ Road

This week at 



The word brought to you by Wendy is...

ROAD


2 Sundays ago, my husband and I went mountain climbing, the LONE MOUNTAIN you see in many of my photos, the one we stared at from our backyard for years and said that we are going to go up there once the weather is nice, 3 years 8 months has passes by since we said that! Oh well, better late than never, we finally did on February 23, 2014.

On the way up, you can see the ROAD leading up to the mountain, and as we walk up, turn back and we can see the ROAD that leads us where we are


and when we were 1/3 through, I can see CRAIG ROAD leaning to Lone Mountain Park


as we go higher, we can even see wider ROADS, the 215 that basically go round the valley


and we can also see the Las Vegas Strip from there, which is 20 miles from us


an hour later, I am on top of LONE MOUNTAIN


what a great feeling

on a super lovely day!

Your roads look like home- Las Vegas and Phoenix share a lot of the same style and vegetation. Lovely pictures.

Congratulations on making it to the top! I'm not much of a 'climber' although DH loves doing that sort of thing. Great post, thanks for sharing.

Congrats on climbing the mountain. It looks like it was lots of fun. I enjoyed looking at all the photos. I wouldn't have guessed from the picture that the strip was 20 miles away.

Your home town is flat...I never knew that Las Vegas was so flat and stretched out.
