Canyonlands of Las Vegas - 2/18/10
Twenty- three hikers followed Ann south this morning to a place she calls Canyon- lands. Nestled in the southwest part of the Las Vegas area, are beautiful limestone canyons where a six mile loop hike takes the hiker up, down and around. It was reported that this was a good scrambling type hike.
To the left is part of a tortoise graveyard found in this area. A mystery of sorts, the tortoise shells are scattered with some broken and some intact.
Break time was taken at a cliff's edge with gorgeous views. Perhaps someone who was on the hike would like to make a few comments below.
The weather was warm today. Las Vegas hit the 70's for the first time this year. Our guest photographer, today, is Kay Komuro. Kay's pictures show that this was a great hike.
