Butterflies & Moths - Patrick J. Blake Photography
A view of Charleston Peak, as seen from the Fletcher Canyon Trail at Spring Mountains National Recreational Area outside of Las Vegas, Nevada.  With temperatures in Las Vegas reaching 70°-80°F, it is an odd sight to find snow only a 45-minute drive away.<br />
