As most of you know, I live in Las Vegas Nevada. This city is full of amazing things to see, and endless excitement for people of all ages. What most don’t know is that in the area surrounding Vegas we have quite a few natural wonders to see as well as the man-made objects of art that can be found in the city. Several national parks including Red Rock and Lake Mead can be found just outside of the bustling metropolis, and offer a break from the non-stop action in town. I, being a local, have been to almost all of these places but still manage to find hidden gems sometimes, like Floyd Lamb State Park. I came across this place when searching for a park to go fly my Spiderman kite. Oh yes, I still fly kites. It’s one of life’s simple pleasures 🙂 But I digress. I didn’t know which park to visit so I simply googled “Best parks in Las Vegas” and the first one to come up was FL state park. Having never been there I was intrigued so I packed up my kite, my weed, and my boyfriend and headed out to see what kind of park this would be.
Upon arriving at the destination (after some minor direction issues) the first thing we saw was a peacock just hanging out in the parking lot near some bushes.
After parking, we decided to just walk around the entire park and check everything out since that’s really the best way to see everything. I left my kite in the car because sadly the wind had died down by the time we got to the park *sad panda*. This park is not only huge but has 4 separate ponds which are all fully stocked for fishing which is awesome given my love for lakes/ponds/rivers. Naturally with all the water there were many ducks and geese there as well, like this guy who looooves Cheetos.
As we were feeding Cheetos to the fat-fatty ducks we noticed a group of 3 ducks, chasing down one of their fellow duckies. This was curious so I continued to watch and to my surprise I was witnessing a duck gang rape. I just had to take a picture of this so here it is:
As you can see from the picture above, the rapist duck has pinned down the lady duck and the rapist duck’s friends are standing around the chaos, cheering him on as though it were a scene from the movie The Accused.
After the horrible scene of duck on duck violence, we moved on to another pond where I got this beautiful shot:
The water mixed with the trees and the snow on the mountains in the background make me love this picture. However, after I took the picture a couple walked by my boyfriend and I so we said “Hello” to them. Actually my boyfriend said “How are we doin today folks?” then the girl glanced at us from the corner of her eye as if to say “how dare you speak to me”, then kept walking without saying a word. This of course angered me so I turned in her direction and said “Oh really bitch?” then my boyfriend grabbed my arm and gave me the “It’s not worth it” look so I mellowed out and went on with my lovely day at the park, refusing to let that sack of whores ruin my day 😀
The park was full of interesting things to look at like this, which is actually pretty darn creepy since you can’t see what’s in the water and there may be some kind of water-zombie or something hanging out in there:
Here’s a picture of me and my lover standing next to the creepy/water-zombie infested pond:
As we were leaving I saw this cute little scene:
The boy in the picture was feeding the goose a slice of bread when the goose got a little over-excited and kinda started to chase the boy. The boy ran as though he couldn’t just kick the dam bird but it’s nicer and more PETA friendly to run like a bitch I suppose 😛
All in all it was a wonderful day. It’s really nice to just get out of the house and soak up some fresh air every now and then. Especially living in a city like Vegas where I am so used to concrete and fake trees, it’s extra nice to be able to go and enjoy nature, even if it’s just a state park. Oh and we got a sweet picture of my thong hanging out while I was feeding ducks so here you go. TREASURE IT! lol
