Warm nights are one of the benefits of desert life, taking a drive at dusk with the windows rolled down while still wearing shorts. Sunset behind Red Rock Canyon sets the whole canyon ablaze with reds and oranges. The sky is clear this evening with no cloud cover to prevent the Luxor's beam of light from reaching the stars. Two days away from full, the Moon out-shines Mars. The Mesquite tree is silent.

There's a quaint book store in the little town of Mt. Charleston. It's 20degrees cooler on the mountain and has panoramic views of the Las Vegas Valley.
