As we set off on our journey to Las Vegas, the city of sin, I was dreading the ride because I had only heard that you drove through desert the whole way there. People made it sound dreadful and boring. However, to my surprise it was the exact opposite. I was so overtaken by all of the beauty that surrounded me. There were so many different mountains, terrains, plants, clouds et cetera that were constantly changing the further from Los Angeles we drove.
The most amazing part was seeing patches of rain from afar scattered throughout the desert. Courtney, Patrick and I were stunned by this as we figured it didn’t rain very often in the desert; guess we were wrong. We saw the most amazing and beautiful lightning that went straight across the entire sky and down directly in front of us with a beautiful backdrop of mountains. Backdrop; that is exactly what every part of the desert looked like.
