Buckshot's Survival Tips-Part I

Let me start by introducing myself. My name is Buckshot, and I am an old gunfighter that has been in the Vegas area for a very long time. There are not many gunfighters left, let alone old ones, for apparent reasons. I have survived hemp neck ties, been blown up in outhouses, and shot in the streets, and I am still around.

My friend Darrell asked if wanted to go snowmobiling last weekend, and since he said he was providing not only the snowmobiles, but a warm and cozy cabin in Duck Creek, I of course said "I'm IN!". We invited a few more friends, Buckshot and Richard, and we headed north to start our journey.

Hiking in Bell's Canyon

This was mine and Doug's first backpacking trip! We got on the mountain at around 3:00pm, holy cow were those backpacks heavy!! We had initially intended to get to Upper Bells Reservoir to camp, but also had another place in mind in case we got too tired to make it to the top. About a 1/2 mile in we realized the stop before Upper Bells was going to be necessary haha... those packs were so heavy.

Lake Mead

Lake Mead National Recreation AreaLake Mead is located on the Colorado River, approximately 30  miles southest of Las Vegas, in the States of Nevada and  Arizona. The many marinas and coves can be accessed from North  Shore Road, Lake Shore Road, and Highway 93 in Nevada, and  several roads in Arizona. Many of the more seclued coves do not have road  access, you can reach them only by boat.

Lake Mead was formed when Hoover Dam was built in the 1930's, and the forming of Lake Mead meant the end to a small town in Overton, St. Thomas. St. Thomas was  a thriving community settlled by Mormon Pioneers.

Lake Mead is the perfect destination for recreational adventures. Boating, fishing, jet skiing, hiking, kayaking stand up paddle boarding, swimming, and more are available at numerous coves and beaches.

Relay Running-More Fun than a Barrel of Monkeys!

Valley of Fire State Park

on Thursday, 18 April 2013. Posted in Trails, State and National Parks and Recration Areas

Valley of Fire State Park

The Valley of Fire State Park is Nevada's oldest, and largest, State Park. It was dedicated in 1935 and covers 34,880 acres. Why is it named the Valley of Fire? Once you see it, or see photos, you'll have your answer! The Red Sandstone Formations were created during the age of dinosaurs, 150 million years ago, from sand dunes that shifted. This shifting, along with lots of erosion combined with uplifting and faults, created the uniquely shaped formations that make up the Valley of Fire State Park. Many of the rock formations also include limestone, shale, and conglomerates. When the sun is reflecting at the right angle, the formations appear to be on fire!
