Graffiti, Tagging and Leave My Wilderness Alone


Graffiti, Tagging, and Leave My Wilderness Alone

Now, let me clear here about one thing, I’ve got nothing inherently against graffiti.  I’ve met many a good or even great graffiti artist.  I admire, respect and in some cases love, their work.  But do me a favor folks, keep it in the city and not in a pristine slot canyon.

Now, to be fair, I doubt this was done by a tagger or graffiti artist or anyone with any talent or purpose.  First of all, putting peace and love in a beautiful, wild canyon, most of the people hiking there already have that idea in their own shape and way.

Second, how many people are going to see this?  Maybe 20-30 on a busy weekend day, most of which it’s going to disturg their sense of inner peace that they already got?  Dumb.

Third, have a little skill, do something original, or at least interesting.  If you’re going to be an asshole, at least be an interesting asshole.

Oh well, it’s chalk, it won’t last long, but if, just by chance, anyone coming across this entry has ever done something like this, or is thinking about it…Don’t.  It’s not cool, or  interesting or creative.  Now, if you’re going to do it on the street, on the side of a building (preferably with the owner’s permission, which does happen), Rock On.  I look forward to seeing your art.

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.

Super Pit Bull Sunday


Some of the regular readers/viewers here may be aware of my the basis for Pit Bull Sundays, if not go here, find out if you want.

So as the last of these “official” Sundays, I offer up these two images of our Stella.  Though somehow I’m betting we’re going to keep doing long walks with her every week.  It really is one of the best ways I can think of to spend a day off.
