In Retrospect: Cold Creek NV



One of the first times out exploring together, Lynn and I got lost looking for the Desert National Wildlife Refuge at Corn Creek. When we stopped at a gas station for directions, the kid behind the counter directed us to Cold Creek, saying it was a much more interesting place. So we took his advice. The turn off to Cold Creek is marked by the Southern Desert Correctional Center (read Prison). And just about two miles up from there is the High Desert State Prison. I’m not sure why we need two separate prisons so close together on the same road but, about ten miles further southwest of the second prison, we came across a small herd of wild horses. We’ve been back several times over the years. The two prisons are still there. So are the horses.

Wild wild horses we’ll ride them someday”

This is how we celebrate the New Year around the Pasquale household. In fact, this is how we celebrate almost every free day around the Pasquale household; getting out of the household and taking pictures. This was one of the first photos I took in the new year, maybe because the night before, New Year’s Eve, we both fell asleep in front of the TV watching the 1963 movie Cleopatra.

Ahh, married life!

So, please go check out The Girl That Dreams Awake for more trees. A forest of trees for this week!

A plethora of trees!
