1/29/2015 Gunlock Petroglyphs, UT (1 mile) - I didn't have pinpoint location of the petroglyphs and there is no sign of petroglyphs. But I was lucky enough to find the petroglyphs soon hike up there. One rock that I was standing behind it was the master piece of this area.

1/29/2015 King Ridge Loop, UT (5.6 miles) - The location of this loop is surronding by the Heath Wash, Cottonwood Wash and FR031. It was strenuous hike to climb up/down the rocky surfaces. Overcast weather condition all day today but can't hide the spectacular view. The view was just gorgeous everywhere we went today.

1/27/2015 Top Arch, Valley of Fire, NV (2.4 miles) - After yesterday's rain, seems to color of rocks are darker than usual under the overcast weather today. I think over saturated sandstone rocks were crack easily that caused Rita to fell. She was one tough lady continue to hiked after the injury, so that we all can enjoy to hike up to the Top Arch.

1/22/2015 Middle Point Island, Lake Mead, NV (19 milels via Boathouse Cove) - Passed large size of a beach, seems to no one come to enjoy the beach except burros. Island is like a peninsula by drought. South side of the island is the Cresent Cove. Time was running out, wish have couple more hours of daylight, so that I can explore the island.

1/22/2015 Boathouse Cove, Lake Mead, NV (16.6 miles) - I have hiked 4x4 dirt road all ways to the Boathouse Cove. I saw bushes are in the water, is cove getting big? Amazing thing I found was large deposit of the Gypsum Crystal Field that least two feet deep, sun light reflect it that made beautiful scene.

1/21/2015 Three Square, Las Vegas, NV - Three Square is only food bank providing food assistance to Southern Nevada. It is non-profit organization distibuted more than 25 million meals last year alone. There are 12,000 volunteers working own schedule to help out the program. I am one of a volunteer to start work soon.
Go Top     
1/19/2015 Jimbilnan Wilderness High Point, Lake Mead, NV (8 miles) - The view of the Lake Mead and surrounding mountains were just gorgeous from the peak. It was a surprise to see Shin's group on the summit today. I was looking for the Stock Ridge from the north side but not easier way to access to it.
Go Top     
1/15/2015 Halfmellow Peak, Lake Mead, NV - When completed three peaks, I had more energy and time left, so decided to hike up to 4th peak that the Halfmellow Peak. East side of this mountain is so gentle and west half is rugged surface. Lucky me, I got out safely from one I picked dried tough canyon.
Go Top     
1/15/2015 Little Pyramid Peak, Lake Mead, NV - This is my third peak today. When reached suddle between Peak 3331 and Little Pyramid Peak, there is human trail, I just follow the trail to the peak. There is a large size of cairn on the summit. The view from atop is breathtaking especially the Lake Mead. 1st row middle photo was taken from the Peak 3331.

1/15/2015 Peak 3331, Lake Mead, NV - This peak is located just west side of the Little Pyramid, seems to the same mountain but different peaks. That's ok for me, can count two peaks that a bargain. Again nice view from atop especially the Sentinel Peak and Little Pyramid Peak.
Go Top     
1/15/2015 Horn Toad Peak, Lake Mead, NV (7 miles for all today's 4 peaks) - 4 peaks in one day that a good deal. When first hike up to the ridge, the Horn Toad Peak was right there, climb up the loose rock surface slope carefully, the view from atop was very nice, wide range of the Jimbilnan wildness view from here.
Go Top     
1/13/2015 Western Beltway Trail, Las Vegas, NV (12 miles) - This trail is relatively new and run by the highway I-215. I have hiked from the Alexandar Rd, north end of the trail, to near the Chalestaon Blvd. The Far Hills bridge is decorated with petroglyphs that design mainly from the Gold Butte especially the Kohta Circus Panels and Valley of Fire.
Go Top     
1/10/2015 Lone Mountain Trail, Las Vegas, NV (9 miles) - Las Vegas Valley has so many urban trails to offer, and this is one of them. The trail starts at the Wayne Bunker family park on the Alexander Rd and end by the Summerlin Pkwy. Its run north to south, parallel to the highway 95, pass five community parks along the way.
Go Top     
1/9/2015 Upper Las Vegas Wash Regional Trail, Las Vegas, NV (6.5 miles) - The trail was closed at the Craig Rd that I didn't know it, so plan B was to walk south on the Upper Las Begas Wash Regional Trail. There are many expensive bridges for the trail. Sooner trail changes to the Las Vegas Wash Regional Trail.
Go Top     
1/7/2015 Bighorn Island & Azure Cove, Lake Mead, NV (8.6 miles) - The Bighorn Island is more like a peninsula rather than an island because few years of drought. That was good for me, I can hike up on the island without using boat or get wet. The view of the Azure Cove from atop of the Bighorn Island was breathtaking.
Go Top     
1/4/2015 Jimbilnan Wildness, Lake Mead, NV (7.8 miles) - I was heading to the Cathedral Peak, but there are so many washes and I don't know which wash to take, a means I lost, spending hours and finally found the right wash, but time was running out and blue sky changed to cloudy, to reach the peak that for next time.
Go Top     
1/1/2015 Razorback Ridge, Lake Mead, NV (4.1 miles) - When I saw this ridge from the Pinto Ridge not long ago, I wanted to climb up and hike the ridge, that I did it today. It is located west side of the south side Pinto Ridge. Atop of the ridge is not flat, many good size rocks to climb up/down and pass the many peaks that include the high point.
