11/30/2013  Quartzite Mountain, NV (11.6 miles) - Funny thing was, we can't see the peak view for long time, finally we saw it just before the peak. Hiked dry wash road for over 4 miles and hike up to the mountain was very short distance. The view was breathtaking we can see the many mountain ranges surronding around here, even we saw Lake Mead.
