DescriptionI frequently hike in the Mt. Charleston area, usually in the summer. In winter it is too cold and snowy. I love the combination of mountain peak, puffy white clouds, and gnarly tree in this photo...... ..... ..... ......Mount Charleston, officially named Charleston Peak, at 11,916 feet (3,632 m), is the highest of the Spring Mountains of southern Nevada and the state's eighth highest mountain peak. It is about 35 miles (56 km) northwest of Las Vegas and is within the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest, the Mount Charleston Wilderness and the Spring Mountains National Recreation Area. Well separated from higher peaks by large, low basins, it is the most topographically prominent peak in the state, and the eighth most prominent peak in the contiguous United States...... ..... ..... ......Mount Charleston is a year-round getaway for Las Vegas' residents and visitors, with a number of hiking trails and a modest ski area. The mountain, which is snow-capped more than half the year, can be seen from parts of the Las Vegas Strip when looking toward the west. ..... ..... ..... ......The state of Nevada issues license plates with the caption 'Mt. Charleston' and an image of the peak in the background. Sales of the plate supports the natural environment of the Mount Charleston area through grants administered by the Nevada Division of State Lands...... ..... ..... ......most of the text above copies/paraphrased from wikipedia.org ***** ***** ***** *****If you are interested in other sizes, greeting cards, or prints on acrylic or metal, please check out our website at: http://alan-and-marcia-socolik.artistwebsites.com/ ***** ***** ***** *****
Alan And Marcia Socolik, henderson, nv Member Since December 2012 Artist Statement Alan and Marcia, Nevada residents, are avid photographers. Alan takes many photos while hiking around the area – you will see some of his dramatic landscape photos in our portfolio. Marcia looks at things from a different perspective – her photos are usually still life or photos of objects that she finds interesting or unique. Together, they present the eclectic display of photos which you see here.
As you can see, Marcia is camera-shy - she would rather be behind the lens than in front of it. ;)
