Recently I flew to Las Vegas to visit family and to help Dori move to the Four Corners. Yes, she got a job that fast! We still can't believe it. We were never really 'Las Vegas girls', but after getting a taste of New Mexico, it became that much clearer. Flying out of the Four Corners usually involves a two-propeller aircraft and some low flying. It can make you happy and horrified all at once. I was happy that I got to see the Grand Canyon like never before, but horrified to think of crashing into that maze-like abyss. The high desert glare from the plane was tough for photo taking, but you can still see how Earth's geological history was carved into the rock, layer after layer, the story continues.
Leaving the Four Corners
Once an Ocean
I was thinking if we crashed, please let it be on a bluff....not into the abyss of the Grand Canyon!
Near Las Vegas, NV. Vegas gets its water from the Colorado River. Vegas will run out of water someday soon.
