You guys. You’re never going to believe this, but there is a wetlands park in Las Vegas. I’m not even shitting you; this is a real place. It’s got rocky streams with miniature waterfalls, peaceful ponds where fish jump and birds bathe, and miles and miles of vegetation that didn’t have to be flown in via helicopter. Also, I’m 90% sure I heard a bear cub in there.
Anywho, my ex-BF/current-BFF had to scope this place out as a potential location for his next short film. I decided to tag along and take some crappy photos. This one ended up being the least crappy:
You’ll notice I don’t really know what the hell I’m doing when it comes to photography, but that’s okay. I’ve just always loved snapping pix. I thought the bugs looked super sweet in this pic, which is sort of misleading because in real life they are obnoxious as fuck. I came home with ten million bites, one of which ended up swelling and turning my entire bicep fire engine red. Instead of going to the doctor I went to webmd.com and it turns out I have incurable cancer, not bug bites. So I’ll let you know how that goes.
Do you know of any other secret oases like this one in the Las Vegas area?
