Time to Visit and Talk

Earlier this month Julie's son and daughter-in-law, Neal and Beth, where in Las Vegas for a long weekend. The trip is a little less than five hours so we drove over one Friday afternoon to spend the night and visit with them. Rather than stay in the city we planned a trip to Gold Strike Canyon which is in Nevada about two miles from Hoover Dam.

Julie and I visited Gold Strike Hot Springs in 2003 and 2008 so this trip enjoyable but not spectacular for us. The best part was having time to talk.

This photo was taken in 2003. Julie is swimming in a large hot pool. This pool no longer exists. It has been filled in by floods.

Not exactly a gentle walk.

Wow. What beautiful images. I imagine the quiet there, perhaps the sound of the occasional raptor overhead.
