Desert National Wildlife Refuge

The DNR is a half hour north from Las Vegas, a vast, sprawling country with rough roads that limit exploring. The trails around the visitor center, however, are easily walked and allow a look at Corn Creek, year round water in the desert.

I was there to photograph the mesquite bosque, a grove of honey mesquite trees. It is a woodland of sorts, special to the desert, what might be called a riparian forest elsewhere.

I was using a new point and shoot which has proven great at zooming in on distant objects and framing shots but its sharpness is too poor for publication. Good for web work.
