I'm getting some fun out of my massive photo file re-org by getting to re-visit some of the places I've been. TempestV and I were in the Las Vegas (NV) area back in 2007 and spent the better part of a day out in the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area.

At a temperature of -13°C with a wind chill of -25°C now (8.6°F to -13°F) right now, I wonder why I'm enjoying looking at pix of the desert in June?

Thank you, Yvonne. That desert wind seemed to be prevalent virtually every day! Yes, it certainly is nice to be able to compare the weather then to what we've experienced so far this winter: a study in contrasts for sure!

Beautiful photo Michelle. I can almost feel the desert wind! I can imagine why you enjoy these pictures now while it's so cold! They radiate warmth!! Thank you! :))

You certainly look at beauty in a very different way in the desert, Jim: form becomes paramount. I have a bunch more to share so stay tuned! Thank you for enjoying it with me.

Ditto, Francine! ☺

Yes, it was (and I presume still is) Ardy. We went out to Red Rock on a cooler day...it was only 98-99°F that day. LOL. But it was a "dry" heat. Yeah. Hot is hot is hot, that's all I'm saying... So, if we mix with today's temps (without wind chill factors), then I'm looking at about...(just a minute, converting to F here)...75°F. That would be a lovely day then! ☺

Is that some type of military memorial garden in the lower left corner? Wouldn't it be great if we could mix that - what - 110 degree heat with today's and end up with seasonable temperatures!! We weren't there more than a couple of days and didn't get here. Thanks, Michelle. Wish it made me feel warmer. ☺♥☺

Ditto. Thanks, Michelle.

I love the raw beauty of the desert! Thanks, Michelle!
