My Wife and I have our Wedding Anniversary five days before Christmas, thanks to me (long story!). This year we went to Las Vegas.
Neither one of us came back with a lot of money, but it was nice to get away for a few days.
I found one of the Free things to do while there. Ethel M’s Chocolate Factory and Cactus Garden. Over a million lights on Cactus. Although it sounds different, it was actually very nice, AND they had really good hot chocolate!
While on a mini road trip a few weeks ago, I spotted this row of little trees along a fence. There was a small creek a few hundred feet away behind them. As I pulled off the road in what remained of a driveway to make this shot, I realized that when backing on to the pavement, I could not see if any traffic was coming from either direction.
After I captured a few images, I backed out really fast, threw it into drive and put the “pedal to the metal”. Sure enough as I topped the incline in front of me, another pickup truck was cresting the other side 100 feet behind me at 65 miles per hour!
