Hoover Dam...Again!

I spent a lot of time outdoors this weekend. Here are some photos from Hoover Dam on Saturday, and a morning hike today to the top of a little mountain on a trail called River Mountain Trail. As always, click on the photo for more photos.

What is wrong with people?

I decided to go to del Taco for lunch; nice and simple and cheap. So I walked up to the cashier, and he says, "May I help you?" "Yes, I would like a #3, medium, chicken, for here." His reply? "Would you like medium or large?" "Ummm, medium." "Chicken or beef?" Ummm, chicken." "For here or to go?" "Ummm, for here, I guess."

So lunch was good, then I went to the car wash, and had to wait in line for some moron who had just washed his car, and rather than pull into the "vacuum/drying area", he was drying his car with a cloth in one hand and chatting on his cell phone with the other, and giving me a look as if to say, "Wait your turn." Sorry, dude, your look was, "I'm an inconsiderate moron."

Thanks for letting me vent, and trying to remember how to do punctuation within quotation marks. It's been a while and I probably messed it up!

Mount Charleston...Again!

Today I visited Mount Charleston again, my favorite retreat from all the asphalt and heat. It's always about 30 degrees cooler up there, and smells like pine trees. The terrain makes an excellent hiking workout, and someday I will hike to the top of the mountain. As usual, click the photo below for more photos.
