After leaving the Reno house, we headed to Las Vegas! Here we got to see some family, and stayed with my Uncle Richard, Aunt Lupe, and cousin Karina for most of July. Most of this time was spent working. My client list was growing at a rate I could hardly keep up with, and I spent many late nights enveloped in design. We did of course find time to spend outdoors, and saw a side of Vegas that doesn’t seem to get much attention in the shadow of its notorious city life. Surrounding the flashing lights of the strip, the striking geology of the Mojave Desert lies still in its beauty.
