3/25/2015 Greenwater Canyon Cave, Death Valley, CA (7.8 miles) - This is my 5th try to visiting this cave, when last time I was near it but I twisted my ankle and came back without visiting the cave. I was so happy to see it at this time, pictographs are not only side of wall but on the ceiling too, I have to lie down to enjoy it.

3/24/2015 Blackrock Well Petroglyphs, Death Valley, CA (4.3 miles) - This is close to the Nelson Range High Point, which I have hiked on 5/4/14. I was expected if I am lucky I can find a few petroglyphs, but I found a lot. One of the wall that not like a large size TV, it was more like a cinema screen. One large petroglyphs was located very steep high up.

3/23/2015 Alkali Hot Springs, NV - This place is located northwest of the Goldfield. Very nice hot water is coming out but hot tubs are need to clean, not desired to soak in. There are two large hot pools but again need to clean to swim in. This place definitely need a caretaker.

Then end up I am at sand dune to enjoy the white sand at this afternoon.

3/21/2015 Grimes Point, NV - I didn't visit the Hidden Cave and Burnt Cave at last time, so that this is my second time to visit here. It is popular place for family to enjoy or nice place to walk around here. They have many petroglyphs but most of are faint out but some of are still going strong.

3/21/2015 Burnt Cave, Grimes Point, NV - The sign said, this is two-chambered cave but I saw only one, I think to get another one is crawl into tiny hole that located righ bottom of behind me of top cener photo.

3/21/2015 Hidden Cave, Grimes Point, NV - I was lucky to get inside the cave, seems to not open all the time. It was touring day and I joined them or followed them. It was very humidity inside and relatively smaller size. It doesn't have "wow" factor but nice to see it.

3/21/2015 Winnemucca Lake, NV - These petroglyphs are oldest petroglyphs in North America located by the highway 447, west side of the Winnemucca Lake that east side of the Pyramid Lake. There is no sign to indicate it, however I saw a closed area sign. I couldn't believe that these are 14,800 years old petroglyphs.

3/14/2015 Auxiliary Point, Lake Mead, NV (12 miles) - The trail was nice until near the cove, there is about 50ft dry waterfall and couldn't go through, decided to climb up to the ridge, there is unmaintained trail and reach the Auxiliary Point. The view from the Auxiliary Point was gorgeous. Many flowers are blooming along the way.

3/8/2015 Western Beltway Trail (2/2), Las Vegas, NV (14 miles) - I have completed entire Western Beltway trail today. It was the south side of the trail, where I have done the north side on 1/13/15. The some segment of the trail was like closed, but not totally that confused me, I walked in from the opening of the fence to enjoy the trail.

3/6/2015 Black Island, Lake Mead, NV (10 miles that include Boxcar Cove too) - View from top of the Black Island was gorgeous, the Fortification Hill is just across the Lake Mead.

3/4/2015 Upper Las Vegas Wash Trail, NV (8.8 miles) - I have walked the Upper Las Vegas Wash Trail that connected with the Las Vegas Wash Trail and Lower Las Vegas Wash Trail. Which means I am done for those wash trails. Special characteristic of this trail was many bright color large size pipes, I wonder are those control gases?
