The view from Spring Crest
There's a tiny community of less than 20 homes along a part of the mountains along Highway 74. It is called Spring Crest. I often pull out there to look at the view of the desert floor far, far below. Last Saturday, however, I stopped to take a closer look of the views around this area. Aren't they spectacular? I can see the huge plateau in the bottom photo from my home in the desert and it's so different up here in the mountains! It was such a clear and bright day that I'm glad I had the opportunity to view this area.
