Newberry Mountains, Nevada

Post by leland »

Located near Laughlin, Nevada, this is a accessible area on a graded dirt road. Rocks, cacti, and petroglyphs at Grapevine canyon. It is a nice chunk of typical upper Mohave plant life. And my pal Sleepy who was sunning himself on the road at about 8 am on an April morning to warn up from the chilly night.

Yes, they are the common species there. Once I saw one drinking out of a stream but didn't have a camera with me. That was in the days before cell phone cameras.

Thank you Leland. That would have made a great pic! Due to our climate, snakes are very rarely seen, I have never seen one myself in nature here.
