This weeks theme is of the word FRESH.
Last Saturday the Nevada Camera Club had a field trip up at Mt. Charleston. It's only twenty minutes from were we live and yet it's 20 degrees cooler and lots of FRESH air. It smelled so fresh it was one of the first things I mentioned to my Husband when we arrived. We all met a the Resort Hotel and had lunch in their dinning room. There was about 22 of us that showed up. We were given a map of trails we could go on. After lunch we all went our own ways. Jarilyn and her Husband Justin joined us in going up to the lodge further up the mountian. We walked around the houses that were near by.
This cabin was one I was fond of, I wouldn't mind having a cabin like this as a get away some day.
Cute Mail box Right?
These Fox's were on the front yard of another house that reminded me of the house that Pippy Longstocking lived in. Do you remember those books?
I took a self portrait. Do you see me?
Then we decided to venture a little further and take a hike on the Cathedral rock trail. My Husband was a tiny bit apprehensive he told us he wait for us while we walked it but he soon decided to follow us.
we saw some unusual growths growing out of trees.
and underneath them.
I think that bugs made all those curvy lines. I thought it was pretty cool.
And that's him sitting there. The climb down wasn't to easy, he skinned up his leg a little. He said it was pretty steep.
He made it though, He said he had fun.
I thought the color of the sky in this photo was pretty.
Shawn pointed out this bird it was on a really tall tree I could hardly see him. The picture turned out better than I thought it would.
This is Jarilyn fixing her setting on her camera we were doing that a lot.
Some more wild flowers we saw along the way.
This is Cathedral rock. We didn't take the trail all the was up to it, we were getting pretty thirsty.
We took the trail heading down instead.
This is looking back.
I've always like Aspen trees they were in the picnic area when we got back down from the trail.
Shawn gets FRESH with me.
We did go in side the lodge and quench our thirst lots of FRESH water and a REFRESHING cocktail for Jarilyn and I. The men just had soft drinks.
We were sitting at the table and outside they had a lot of humming bird feeders so I tried to take a few pictures of them. These are the only two that came out ok, such fast little birds.
We went home after that, short but sweet trip. I hope you had some fun sharing it with me.
