“Grand Canyon” “Hoover Dam” and Horse riding in “Red Rock Canyon” Nevada, USA

On a number of days away from my base at Las Vegas (2012), I visited some of the Worlds most iconic tourist sites, namely The Spectacular Grand Canyon. There is nothing much I can say about that other than Awesome. Another trip took me to the Massive and impressive Hoover Dam, which holds back, America’s largest man made Reservoir – Lake Mead, after making electricity, the water is fed back into the mighty Colorado River. One of my most enjoyable and relaxing days was spent at the Bonny Springs Ranch in Red Rock Canyon on the Ole Spanish Trail, I had a fantastic horse (called Outlaw). the only consequence…being from the city, I spent the next 24 hrs walking like John Wayne, as I tried to get feeling back into certain parts!

10) Lake Powell – Sunset

Saying goodbye to Lake Powel and a memorable trip.

This is last in a series of 10 slideshows from our trip to Lake Powell in June of 2011. The trip was planned and attended by the LDS Church youth groups from Peoria, Arizona comprising Oakwood and Agua Fria wards. Generous members of the wards donated their time, talents and resources to make this a trip of a lifetime. Special thanks goes out to Jerry and Vicki Moyes who hosted us on the houseboat of all houseboats – Big Dog!

The pathway to the Chapel of the Holy Cross – Sedona
where to rock climb
Image by Al_HikesAZ
I played tour guide for my daughter and her friend Brenda for a trip to Sedona. We toured the Chapel of the Holy Cross. To reach the Chapel of the Holy Cross you climb this ramp and go around the corner.

History

The first conception came to Marguerite Bruswig Staude in 1932 in New York City while observing the newly constructed Empire State Building. When viewed from a certain angle a cross seemed to impose itself through the very core of the structure. She wanted to build a structure that would glorify her Creator and in thanksgiving for all that her family had received. She traveled throughout Europe looking for the ideal location. She returned to the United States and while her and her husband Tony traveled through Sedona, she was struck by the beauty of the area and decided that this chapel should be built here. . “This would be a monument to faith, but a spiritual fortress so charged with God, that it spurs man’s spirit godward".

Built on a twin pinnacled spur about 250 feet high, jutting out of a thousand foot red rock wall, "solid as the Rock of Peter" the building of the Chapel was completed in April 1956. Just the physical construction was a physical miracle, overcoming difficult conditions to construct this chapel.

The message of the Chapel "That the Church may come to life in the souls of men and be a living reality is renewed and observed each day. Even as we speak it invites all to come to spend time to get connected with their creator.

The Diocese of Phoenix and St John Vianney parish has maintained and administered the Chapel since 1969. We are only caretakers of this most spiritual structure, where all are welcomed to come, meditate, pray and be reconnected with their Creator. We are here to pass this on to those who come after, so the Chapel may glorify the great gifts God has given us. In our transient exsistence, in good times and bad, we are here to be united with all in faith and purpose. To live in peace and unity with all our brothers and sisters .

The Chapel of the Holy Cross has been a compelling Sedona landmark since its completion in 1956. Designed by Marguerite Brunswig Staude, a pupil of Frank Lloyd Wright, the Chapel appears to rise out of the surrounding red rocks. The towering cross and awesome panorama of buttes, valley and sky are a source of inspiration inviting rest and reflection. (This site presents incredible photo opportunities in all directions!)

The American Institute of Architects gave the Chapel its Award of Honor in 1957. In the sculptor’s words, “Though Catholic in faith, as a work of art the Chapel has a universal appeal. Its doors will ever be open to one and all, regardless of creed, that God may come to life in the souls of all men and be a living reality.”

In 2007 Arizonans voted the Chapel to be one of the Seven Man-Made Wonders of Arizona,[2] and it is also the site of one of the so-called Sedona vortices

Qantab – The Symphony of Rocks . . .
where to rock climb
Image by Beauty Eye
This shot was taken with the Canon 600D with Tamron 10-24mm f3.5-4.5 @ 13mm with 77mm Polarizing filter.
This is the 100% crop of the original shot i took yesterday 🙂
I used ISO speed of 100 , Aperture f8.0 and exposure time of 10 seconds.

This place is called Qantab in the capital of Oman, Muscat. well this place is full of small beaches & huge mountains. I had to climb little mountain 😀 and walk to the other side where i found this amazing little spot. . These rocks were full of fossils & little red crabs..

My Cam was actually pointing to the north-West but due to the huge mountain to the left side, which is not whithin the shot frame, i wasn’t able to witness a magic sunset… but was happy with the shots i took.

The Chief
where to rock climb
Image by ecstaticist
This is a 2000+ foot high granite dome. To get a sense of scale here, look at the larger versions and you will see full grown pine trees on ledges.

Located adjacent to Shannon Falls Provincial Park, Stawamus Chief Provincial Park is extremely popular amongst rock climbers, and those who cheer them on. There’s a campground at the base of Stawamus Chief Mountain. You’ll find 40 wilderness/walk-in campsites – facilities provided include water, pit toilets, and many day-use facilities.

At last count there were 180 routes to climb on Stawamus Chief Mountain in Squamish, all of which begin from the base of one the largest free-standing granite monoliths in the world. Estimated to be 93 million years old, the Chief is one of the senior members of the local landscape, parts of which were laid down as lava a scant 12,000 years ago. Advanced and novice climbers alike look for appropriate routes on ‘The Chief,’ ‘The Squaw,’ and ‘The Apron,’ which together form the main climbing area.

The best barometer of the Chief’s international reputation is to check the wide range of licence plates on the cars parked in the climbers’ lot at the base of the mountain, and to eavesdrop on the languages being spoken here in the staging area, where as many as 25,000 climbers gather annually. The climber’s parking lot in Stawamus Chief Provincial Park is located on the east side of Hwy 99 at its junction with the Stawamus River Forest Rd, just north of the Stawamus Chief roadside viewpoint.

Work & Travel USA 2011 Our Summer in the United States

-Episode 13 Majestic Arches-

After not so fun and rainy day we head to wonderful Arches National Park. Starting from Lake Powell campground in Page, Arizona, we head to Monument Valley first. This valley is well known and seen in a lot of western movies. After some more driving we finally reached majestic arches. It was like grownups playground. It seems you want to try experience everything by climbing on each rock and hoping to see amazing view. Enjoy, subscribe, like and comment. Thank You!

Po kiek mažiau linksmos ir lietingos dienos mes patraukėme lyg nuostabaus Arkų nacionalinio parko. Išvykę iš Lake Powell stovyklavietės, kurioje buvome apsistoję, važiavome Monumentų slėnio link. Šis slėnis gerai žinomas ir matytas daugybėje vesterno filmų. Pavažiavę dar kelis šimtus mylių, pagaliau pasiekėme didingąsias arkas. Tai buvo tarsi suaugusiųjų žaidimų aikštelė. Atrodo, norėdami patirti kuo daugiau įspūdžių stengėmės užlipti ant kiekvieno akmens ar uolos tikėdamiesi pamatyti nuostabų vaizdą. Mėgaukitės, prenumeruokit, balsuokit ir komentuokit. Ačiū!

**Special thank you to all friends who made this summer unforgettable, the Resort which made our dreams come true and Lithuanians’ World Center for all the help with this program.

Raymond Rides His Uncles Ford GT at Lake Mead Nevada

we drove from Las Vegas to Hoover dam September 13, 2008
Video Rating: / 5

Nevada’s Valley of Fire off-road trail south rim route through Muddy Mountains connecting to Lake Mead’s Echo wash & Echo Bay. Started the trip early saturday morning. Met unusual amount of traffic thru the offroad trail. A Capt in a 4x4explorer.. followed right after a Military Hummvee loaded to the teeth with our best and finest in full battle gear (sorry I did not take pics coz they were camped out at the front entrance of the trail doing some military live-fire excersise). We asked if we could trade trucks, He politely said “He’d love to but No thanks coz he might loose his job.” …lol. We saw a couple of trail bikes, Atvs and 2 old ladies that did not need rescue. They were enjoying the day and the trail just as much as we were. We picked up some garbage from which year we did not know nor cared. On the rock walls we found some petroglyphs possibly Anasazi maybe 900 to 1000 years old and also did a little bit of rock climbing. It was an awesome day.
