Lovell Canyon, Don’t Ya Just Want to Be Here?

Lovell Canyon Infrared 005.jpg

This is Lovell Canyon, it’s about 45 minutes out of Las Vegas.  This is a hard one to find a link for directions and info, so I’m going to give you a rough idea for those who end up here looking to go to Lovell Canyon.

First and foremost, there ain’t a ton of hiking here, yet.  I’ve only found one real trail head, but they’re expanding the trail system.  At least that’s what the 11 Americorp workers told me while walking by me with digging equipment on a day that was going to get to over a 100.  They recently added a hike to a spring, the name of which I’ve currently forgotten and they were working on expanding another trail.  The hitch here is that to even get to these trail heads required a 2 mile hike to start with, each way.

The current trail is a beautiful walk though through a pine-juniper forest.  It’s well worth the effort in and of itself.  It’s an in and out hike.  No loop, not yet, we’ll see in the future.  I’ve also never found a map of the trails in this area.

To get to Lovell Canyon drive over the hump to Pahrump, also known as take SR 160/Blue Diamond Road.  After you get over the pass watch for the next turnout on the right, it’ll be a few miles but is well labelled.  Turn down this road and just keep driving, after 11 miles the road will turn to gravel, turn left, go a 1/4 mile and park.  You’re good to go.

Happy hiking.


Pano – White Rock Canyon Bend

This is a pano of one of my favorite bends on my current favorite hike around Vegas, White Rock Canyon.

Check the pano here.  It’ll make your window full screen.

As usual, hold down your mouse button and move the mouse to look around.


Things Ya Find When Looking Through Old Stuff

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmail

So I was poking around through my old panos looking for a few more and I came across this one.  I did this a few years back, maybe 3 or 4 or 5 or I don’t know.

I did this originally to try to sell a client of mine, Dominican University, (nice people, good place, fyi) on the possibility of how these could help them market online, do online tours, stuff like that.  I forgot it was even there.

Anyhow, click on this link, check it out, it’s worth the time.  Click on the image and move your mouse around to move your view around, up, down, left, right, anywhere.

It will make your browser go full-screen, fyi.  And yeah, the audio ain’t anything of interest, but it’s what’s there right now and I ain’t fussing with it.

Click here.

Update: Apparently they changed something in the newest WordPress release which makes it challenging to make a pic a link.  I’ll work on solving it (I think it’s solved, fingers crossed).  In the meantime use the other links if ya don’t mind.

Ecovillage Tour

The following are a series of panoramics talking about my buddy Damien’s ecovillage, life in it, permaculture, sustainability, and how to make a kickin’ bathroom.

(There are some small issues, tiling to speed load times and low res previews while full res load and that kind of stuff.  Just give it a minute to load and look around while you listen to Damien describe his ecovillage.)

From Badwater, 282 feet below sea level, in Death Valley, California.  It’s a surprisingly lively place, while also still being very desolate.

As usual with the panos, click on on them or here to actually see them in their full 360ness.

Another panoramic, this time from the Valley of Fire in Nevada (btw, really cool place. I’d go if I were you and hopefully in the future I’ll get to spend more time here. Gorgeous.) Again this image, this is just a rough start, go here for the real thing.

Also I’ve started making prints of these available. You can purchase them here through my ImageKind store. (A guy has to make a buck or two somewhere.)

Another Panoramic

Here’s another panoramic from my recent trip to Nevada. Click on the image or here to see it as it should be seen. The photo below is just a taste. Trust me here. And give it a minute to load, it’s big, I’m working on figuring out what I need to change to make it smaller.

You can also get a print of this image here.

These are two panoramas I’ve done by Red Rock Canyon. This is what I do on vacation.

You can click, hold, and move the mouse to look around. It might take a minute for them to load, especially the first one, I didn’t spend much time optimizing them because I’m a bum like that.
