Hamblin Mountain - 1/5/12
There are blue-ribbon views from loftier spots, but few rival the Lake Mead panorama from atop Hamblin Mountain. Eleven hardy souls made the seven-mile trek. Astonishingly, seven trekkers were Hamblin virgins. Amazing. Less than an hour into the hike, a warm winter sun dictated a mass shedding of clothes. T-shirts seemed to be the apparel du jour.
