Here's a glimpse into tomorrow's City Daily Photoblogger's Theme Day post "Statue", do you see the statue? You'll have to look closely. This is part of the arm rest from the mosaic couch in Rhyolite, NV entitled "Sit Here". See if you can catch it, if not you will have to tune in tomorrow to see it.

This mosaic couch is part of the Goldwell Open Air Museum in ghost town of Rhyolite, Nevada. This piece is titled Sit Here and is the creation of Sofia Siegmann. Originally created for the Lied Discovery Children's Museum in Las Vegas in 2000. The Goldwell Open Air Museum brochure says that Sit Here was rescued in 2007 restored and reinvisioned at Goldwell in 2007.
I don't know about you but the fact that word rescued when describing a piece of art work is quite disturbing. I makes me feel that Las Vegas is devoid of culture.

The Happy Burro in fabulous Beatty, Nevada about 100 north of Las Vegas. Serving Chili, Chili Fritos and Chili dogs and of course cold drinks. We stopped here on Sunday and sampled a bowl of chili on the patio where they have a small stage for a band.There was a biker guy playing his guitar and singing.
While were there we watched the Nye County Sheriff's pull over about 3 different drivers for speeding. So if you are going to Beatty you had better watch your speed.

Not my holiday, but many people celebrate 420 so whatever! I found this WHATEVER sticker, wheatpasting or whatever you want to call it, Downtown on Fremont Street East. This was on the back of No Parking Sign.

Yesterday we ventured out to Death Valley to check out the wildflowers. This year we've seen so much rain that it should be a banner year for wildflowers. We had a great time it was about 90°, which isn't so bad but very windy. The wind made it very difficult to photograph anything let alone flowers. I did manage to get a few decent shots. Anyway, this is a catcus blossom that found on Daylight Pass Road. I didn't realize that I cause a bee hard at work inside until I downloaded this photo!

I spotted this sign at the corner of Durango and Oso Blanco.I don't know about you but it always seems like there is some kind of election going on here in Vegas.This candidate ran for our State Senate in '08 you can check out signs from his campaign here. Mr Wernicke must have an axe to grind if wants into public office so bad. You couldn't pay enough!

Area 51, trust me they MEAN BUSINESS. On the hill to the right we were being watched by the Cammo Dudes, just waiting for us to cross the "line". Instead of crossing the "line" we are probably on some sort of black list!

That's the "Black Mailbox" which is now the white mailbox. This mailbox is key finding to Area 51 .The mailbox is at the intersection of the Extraterrestrial Highway and (you guessed it) Mailbox Road. You turn off here and drive on unpaved roads to find UFO Nirvana, Area 51.

This is the stop sign at the intersection of Highway375 The Extraterrestrial Highway and the turn off for Area 51. Notice the bullet holes? On our ride out to Rachel, NV we noticed most of the signs along the highway were riddled with bullets.
