I wanted a sunset shot where the rays were shining upon the town, and I got a bonus with a nice color sunset. Thanks for looking. Bob

thanks Dave, yeah it does look off. That is so that when the monsoon storms come in, the water will drain off quicker. Bob

Beautiful skies! I don't think I've ever seen a sunset with the skies that color. I always look forward to your photos.

Great sunset Bob.

That's the best Walmart photo I've ever seen, I can see the text now... "as the sun set in the west, over the illuminated Wal-mart sign, our hero stopped in for some fries at the in store MacDonalds."

Thanks Norm, here is a shot from tonight. You forgot the double quarter pounder with cheese and a chocolate shake to go with the french fries.

Hey, I used to live there! My mom owns a mail forwarding/office supply business there too. I do miss the mountains and the scenery, but I don't miss the poof dirt!

Well, when you decide to move, you really move. From NV to TN, quite a bit of difference in the scenery. We like this town, great buffets and people. thanks for looking Bob
