A Trail Along Red Rock Canyon

ANOTHER DAY WAS SPENT GOING TO THE RED ROCK CANYON... It was just an hour away from Las Vegas and this time we took our own sweet time to get ready unlike the other day when we went to the Grand Canyon which was a five hours drive away.

For nature lovers especially, this is one of the places not to be missed.  Though I am not well-versed with plants and gardening, I managed to know some of the plants' names and most of them are cactus actually... but sorry, I think I cannot remember them all... According to what I heard, this is the best time to see the cactus blooming.  In another month or two, the land will be dry and out...

The few of us walked along the trail and saw some interesting carvings at the foot of the mountain...

Setting out on the road...
As we approached the Red Rock....
This time we did not stop to take the Red Rocks...
Beaver Cactus...
Barrel Cactus...
Cannot remember this though...
We hiked and followed the trail to the deeper side of the mountains...
The carvings on the mountain....
We saw someone climbing the mountain.... and I felt so scared for her.... 
I zoomed in to the climber... 
She looked like "helpless" as the man at the top of the mountain waited... 
That's us... yes!
And leaving our "prints" here before leaving...
Red Rock Canyon...

  1. The cactus is beautiful!! I see the Beaver Cactus is named because it is shaped like the tail of a beaver! Oh, that lone climber! It looks like she has no ropes or gear to catch her.

  2. I am not sure I would be that adventurous to climb the mountain. Interesting carving on the mountain though.

    Thanks for sharing the photos, Claire. I feel that I have been there.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
