The Dragons

I rode my Vstrom to Southwest Virginia and rode the Back of the Dragon (Highway 16 between Marion and Tazewell).  A couple of photos from one of the overlooks.

Valley of Fire

I had a couple of free hours while on a business trip to Las Vegas so I drove out to the Valley of Fire. I was able to get a few decent photos before the sun went down.  It is a magnificent place with beautiful rock formations and mountains.  I pumped the color up a little in the top photo, but it is still a pretty accurate rendition of the area.

The Bridge at Hoover Dam

A few years ago I visited Hoover Dam with my wife and we saw the beginnings of a new bridge  across the canyon.  I finally got my chance to see the finished product.  It is called the Mike O'Callaghan–Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge.  I love the jet contrails. They were all over the sky.

Here is a view of the dam from the bridge (yes, it is a nice little hike).


Bridge detail and more contrails.
