2/28/2012  Logandale Petroglyphs, NV - I spent time to search the petroglyphs for the 2 to 3 areas, which was not necessary around here. This place is well maintained the petroglyphs by built not only the wire fence, they built signs for the petroglyphs sites. Some petroglyphs are diminishing but overall still good condition to see and enjoy it.     More Rock Art click here.

2/28/2012  Logandale Trail, NV - Less than 10 miles hike seems to 20 miles hike because the trails are like on the sand dune that the why no hikers even surronding by beautiful red rocks. However there were many ATVers, they were having fun riding on the sand trails. Amazing thing happened that a police officer gave me a human step, a means I step up on his thigh to climb up to the arch by the petroglyphs.

2/26/2012  Petroglyph Wash, Lake Mead, AZ - The name doesn't say lie, I found three groups of petroglyphs in the wash in three miles range and not far from the sign post, see the first photo. I am sure I can find some more petroglyphs that leave it for the next time. Seems to not popular place because I couldn't find any information from the Internet.    More Rock Art click here.

2/11/2012  Mica Peak, Gold Butte, NV (LVMC) - I didn't count but hike up to many false summits, every time made me disappointed, especially this was second peak to hike up today, which means I was tired and hoping easily to reach the peak. The Mica Peak is located about center of the Gold Butte region that far from the Lake Mead, but somehow managed to see some nice Lake Mead view.   Road map

2/11/2012  Jumbo Peak, Gold Butte, NV (LVMC) - There was no hiking trail and only rocks/boulders at the top of the summit. It was not long hike by distance however timewise it takes longer for the class 5 rock climbing at the top. Guys were eager to climb up to the peak and didn't make to the 5pm news, which was success story, Good Job guys! The Overton Arm Lake Mead view was beautiful.   Road map
