Each year I try to make a pilgrimage to the Bellagio to view the exhibits in the Conservatory. This year I attended their summer exhibit with my friend Blake Smith. The summer exhibit features its first Italian-inspired display titled "Tour of Italy". Follow this link for pictures and description ... Bellagio's Conservatory & Botanical Garden.
On 07/03/2017 I mademy tenth visit to Cold Creek. Today, Jim Herring, her daughter Christina, Bob Croke, Harvey Smith and I decided to head to Cold Creek Nevada to hike the Bonanza Peak trail. Once we reached the town of Cold Creek, we spent a little time looking around for some wild horses that normally populate this area. After a few pictures we then headed up the 2.2 mile dirt road above the town (Camp Bonanza Cold Creek Road) that leads to the trailhead. We made it in Jim's SUV without any trouble.
