A Hidden Gem, Moore State Park

More State Park is a great place to relax and escape if you like to enjoy walking, running, drawing or painting in the summer.  There is a natural Abundance of beautiful plant life.  A wooden bridge over looks the ponds collection of lily's on one side while creating a waterfall with hand built stone walls on the other. 
A smaller portion of Moore State Park is paved and gives easier access to those who have difficulty following a dirt trail.  The trails do lead off from this paved area giving a more places to explore and roam.

A Trip to the Grand Canyon

Gazing over the edge. The Grand Canyon is too large to be seen from the ground.  One can only ponder the numerous adventures exploring this phenomena.  
On a nice day the Canyons colors of bright oranges and mixed earth hues stand out against a bright blue sky.   Strange rock formations stand tall balancing on themselves.  Layers of erosion show the years of drought.  This Canyon was once a very large lake.  Dwindled down to a river that powers the Hoover Dam, Vegas and a Large portion of California.

What will happen when it dries up and there is no more water to power the cities of Nevada and California.  Will they become ghost towns? Will people be forced to create new ways of making fresh water and electricity?  Only time will tell.
