This weekend, I took a trip to Lake Tahoe for a getaway trip. Upon arrival, the weather was perfect and the scenery was picture perfect with the fall foliage in the mountains with the colors of gold, brown, red, and orange.
One of my favorite places in Tahoe is the casino. Although I enjoy gambling and playing slot machines, I loved seeing the bright colors and hearing the sound effects as well. The biggest highlight was winning $20 on a quarter slot machine at Harrah’s Casino.
My other favorite spot was the historic town of Virginia City, Nevada. Being in that city was like stepping back in time, with old antique stores, small eateries, and older casinos.
One of my favorite stores was the Superchicken Store, which had a lot of sport logos created into posters, banners, signs, and lots of other things as well. I enjoyed this store the best because of my interest in sports (as mentioned in my bio), and it inspired me to create a graphic art collage that could be made into a future poster or greeting card.
Although I did plan on doing a lot of gambling during the entire trip, I didn’t want to miss a chance to capture the beautiful fall scenes of Lake Tahoe because a lot of them were similar to the paintings created in art class.
No matter where I travel to and what I do there, there will always be time to stop and enjoy the great outdoors that nature has to offer!
