So many grave stones.  So many lives.  Are they known?  Remembered?  Visited by loved ones?  Or did they simply give their lives for their country and then we all move on?  Hard to know.  All us visitors go there to take in the ambiance and history.  Maybe do some imagining.  What’s it like to be buried at Arlington?  Heck, what’s it like to be buried at all?  Guess we’ll all find out soon enough.

It was fun exploring the Mandarin Oriental hotel in Vegas.  It’s fairly new, lush, exotic.  What else would it be.  It’s Las Vegas.  Here, I thought I’d put my camera to the test in trying to capture both scenes presented in one shot, outside and inside at night, when glass glare is at it’s finest.  Just the opportunity to look around the hotel was good enough for me.

A bit of local history in a city that is timeless.  We were staying fairly close to Rembrandt Square so getting here was easy.  Just another enchanting part of a remarkable city, perfect for getting around in.

This is the spot.  The calling card for the Wilbur Hot Springs experience.  It’s the main draw for all who come here.  And believe me, it’s worth it.  The cold pool is invitingly green and natural.  The perfect place to submerge into after soaking in the warm or hot mineral waters in the bath house.  So inviting, so relaxing.  Ahhh.

I love being in the forest in the fall.  It’s moist and cool, often with plenty of mushrooms growing, adding to the texture and color of the terrain.  Whether walking on trails or traipsing through the underbrush, it always brings joy and a quite excitement to the soul.  And the redwood forest brings a different twist to the adventure.  They’re so tall and stately.  Nothing quite like it.
