12/30/2010   Hamblin Mountain, NV (Around the Bend Friends) - We started to hike east from the mile marker 18 Northshore Rd in the Lake Mead National Recreation Area and turn south from the Cottonwood Springs. It was windy, the wind blows all air pollution out and 360-degree view from the summit was clear clean and worth to hike up to. The GPS track from Google Earth that courtesy by Jerry T.

12/28/2010   Sugarloaf Canyon, AZ (Lake Mead National Park Service) - It is located just south of the Hoover Dam Bypass Bridge. We got off at the first exit from the bridge and the parking lot is located by the exit that is the trailhead of this hiking. From the view point, we enjoyed to watch the floating rafting boat and kayacks, and of course the new Hoover Dam Bypass Bridge.

12/23/2010   Blue Diamond Hill, NV - I hiked up the Skull Canyon and hike down the Waterfall Canyon (I called it that the northend canyon.) First row rightmost photo is a fossil of the fish feces, it's large in size that's telling the large fish, I assume 6-10 ft long, was there millions years ago. 3rd row leftmost photo is about 10ft high and next one is about 100ft high dry waterfalls. After came down the 10ft high waterfalls, I was at the top of the 100ft high dry waterfalls and thinking how to get down. I don't recommend to anyone to go there, it was too tough to come down. 2nd row 3rd and 4th photos are my trail down.

12/17/2010   Little Black Mountain Petroglyph Site, AZ - I have no idea why it's called the Little Black Mountain, to me, it is red-brown color not black. May be who named it, he was color blind or decades later color has been changed??? It is located near the Utah border and nice place to visit as a family.

12/16/2010   Anasazi Valley, UT - It is located small town of Ivins that northwest from the St George UT. It was raining and don't want to slip out from the wet rocks, so I didn't walk around much to find more petroglyphs, I will tray this place again when weather is nice. The bird I saw was a male Quail.

12/15/2010   Zen Trail, UT (Outback Hiking Club of Southan Utah) - The name of the Zen Trail is un-official name, it is located backyard of the residential area and good place to meditate, so that people started to call it the Zen Trail. However we hiked there but we didn't meditate.

The view of the Las Vegas Valley is breathtaking. We hike down the Skull Canyon way back.

The clothing is not optional, it is required to nude to soak in the pools. The dates are almost ready to harvest, one palm tree produces about 200 lbs of dates each year, and these are yammy.

12/7/2010   Lava Butte, NV - It was a short hike, only one hour to get to the summit and 45 minutes to get back that include taking photos. I drove on the Lava Butte dirt road for couple miles from the Lake Mead Blvd and parked at the power tower #292-4, only this tower has a number, which was most closer to the Lava Butte lower portion of the ridge. The view from the top was 360 degrees beautiful view.

12/5/2010   North Bowl of Fire, NV (Bureau of Land Management) - This is my second time at the North Bowl of Fire but we took the different route, we drove on the dry river wash for 5.5 miles from the mile marker #16 Northshore Rd to get to we can't drive anymore that the place we parked. Driving was longer but shorter hike compare to another route, lot of scramblings.
