The last week of summer vacation Grant and I tried to fit as many fun things in as we could. One day we went up to Mt. Charlseton. Mt. Charleston is about 25 min. away. It's a wonderful place to go during a Las Vegas summer because it's about 30 degrees cooler there. It's fun in the car to watch the thermostat go down, down, down and on the way home watch it go up, up, up. I love taking Grant there because he can really be a boy and get all dirty. I love that it is a totally different landscape than the desert, it's covered with pine trees. At Christmas time we went up to Mt. Charleston and it was covered with snow and Grant got to go sledding.
