Welcome to the Weekend Coffee Share a time for us to take a break out of our lives and enjoy some time catching up with friends (old and new)! Grab a cup of coffee and share with us! What’s been going on in your life?
I’ve been working on my book project The Desert Around Las Vegas at least 4-5 hours/day this week. At the moment I’m working on a chapter about Valley of Fire State Park. I absolutely love that place (as you probably know if you’ve been around for a while,) its fun to write about it, and re-live my photos from Valley of Fire. I’ve lost count on how many times I’ve visited this past year. I was thinking that it might be fun to go there this Saturday, maybe get some more photos, but then I realized that it is National Public Lands Day, meaning free entrance, and likely a lot of people. October (almost there) is a beautiful time to visit Valley of Fire, and other National/State Parks that are too hot to fully enjoy in the summer.
This is a great time of the year. I think we are past three digit temperatures now. It’s going to be a high of 94 today, but cooler this weekend, Sunday looks really nice only 78. I’m going to get out of the city at some point this weekend, I need to breath some fresh air, and let my dog and daughter run free for a while. I doubt that there will be any camping this weekend, but I did get a new tent this week. I put it up in our tiny, tiny, cemented court yard, to make sure everything worked as its supposed to. I believe it does 🙂
I can’t wait to test it! I smell road trips, and adventure! I’m thinking the usual amazing places: Death Valley, Valley of Fire, Mojave National Preserve, Mount Charleston that are reasonably close by. I also want to go to Zion National Park. I’ve driven through Zion once, but it was many years ago, and I barely remember it. I would love to experience Zion again, with fall colors. I think the thought of that excited me the most.
How are you on your coffee? Need a refill? Have a wonderful, wonderful weekend, YOU deserve it!
