Hiking Out West

Here's a few pictures I took on a hike outside of Las Vegas with my Grandpa. The big tanks are a water collection and supply system put together by the Fraternity of the Desert Bighorn ('Papa Jack' is a member)for big horn sheep in the area. We didn't see any there, but we saw 45 on a cliff next to a mining project on the way out.

(Yours truly checking water levels)

It Is What It Is

Vic Chesnutt was an amazingly inspirational and moving singer songwriter who died December 2009 of suicide. The new documentary 'It Is What It Is' follows one of Chesnutt's last shows that November. Chesnutt's music is so beautiful, heart-wrenching, and unique. The powerful emotions he conjures in this show are multiplied by the intimate setting and foreshadowing of the tragic event to follow.
