Blue Diamond, a refuge in the desert. The exact opposite of the Sodom and Gomorrah that we all know as Las Vegas. Situated about 10 or 15 miles west of town, it is a far cry from the lights, sights, sounds and porn slappers of the strip.

The landscape is quite majestic out here, it reminded me a lot of the Wadi Rum in southern Jordan.

Classic desert riding.
