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.
Buckshot Miller-Awesome GuideYatahay!!! Buckshot here the real (OG), Old Gunfighter. I learned OG from the Young Ones. Yatahay, a giant Creek Indian friend of mine foryears, he would always greet me by saying this. I never asked but I like to think it meant Good Day or how are you. No pun intended. Yatahay is kind of a fun word to say.
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 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.
If you haven’t discovered this secret yet, it is high time you did: running a race with friends is a whole different experience than running solo! If you would like the motivation of being signed up for a running event, but you dread the drudgery of running alone, then a relay race might be just the thing for you.
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!
