Another Lake Mead hike. This one to the Cholla Forest. The hike follows the River Mountains loop trail from the RR tunnel parking lot and a few dirt roads to a cool stand of Cholla.

Took a hike with three other hikers to just past the 5th tunnel and back. First hike of 2013! Goal of 500 miles this year and will hopefully maintain that for years to come.

Public hike up Hamblin Mountain. 10 hikers including some return hikers following last weeks Liberty Bell Arch Hike. This is one of my favorite hikes at Lake Mead. No bighorn this time around which was surprising. There was a bighorn skeleton at Cottonwood Spring. This was new since last time I was there in April.

Beautiful hike! Went to scout this hike for a possible public interpretive hike this fall. Turns out that likely won't happen, road is too washed out, not too mention some of the dry falls are hard to navigate. This was an awesome hike! Tiring on a hot day like today but worth it. Saw quite a few sheep, 2 males with a heck of a rack and a group of 4 females. Some spectacular scenery out there. Its easy to forget there is SOO much more at Lake Mead than just the lake! Its a cool park.

Pre-hiking Liberty Bell Arch which is one of the fall ranger led hikes. Got to the arch and overlook just fine, on the way back when I got back in White Rock Canyon and the AZ Hot springs trail I ran into a distressed hiker whose mother was about a half mile back down White Rock Canyon and out of water. I hiked back down canyon, gave her what little water I did have and started hiking out with her slowly, making sure she rested plenty in the shade and didn't overdo it. Her son finally met back with us and had more water from the car and some food. After eating and resting for a half hour she was much better and continued out of the canyon to the trailhead. More than I anticipated on this Thursday hike which was supposed to be real quick and easy!

Led this hike/field trip for 13 wilderness managers from throughout the west as part of the Arthur Carhart Wilderness training course. We talked about some of the issues that Lake Mead has to deal with when it comes to managing wilderness including overflight issues, endemic plants, and invasive species. One of the coolest things I've done as an NPS ranger.

Beautiful hike. I have to lead this hike later this month as part of the Carhart Wilderness training course for Wilderness managers, so today was a prep day. Really nice hike, saw a single bighorn sheep just past Cottonwood Spring, he was there both on the way to and back from the peak.

Great hike on a Monday morning. I live in NV now but I still am hiking a bunch in AZ! Good to explore this part of the state, which I think is often overlooked as far as hiking goes. You can do some cool trips in the Lake Mead area.

Great hike on a beautiful day. Great views from the top of the Lake, Mount Charleston and the Mojave Desert. NPS does guided hikes of Fortification Hill from time to time, this was one of those.

Just a quick hike to stretch my legs on a Saturday afternoon. Really neat short hike that includes a slot canyon, a natural bridge, and owl pellets ready for your inspection!

I would consider this my first real hike in Lake Mead, as the Railroad trail was more of a walk. Great hike here. Narrow canyons, the colorado river, and hot springs all in a short trip!!
