As others have said, pretty tough for a 3-miler! These are some pretty steep, loose dunes. Nice views from the top!

Lots of Joshua trees, historic mining features, and cool views from the top. Started getting some unwanted attention from some bees though, so we didn't stick around for too long :)

Parked at the Upper White Rock lot, and then went clockwise on the loop. Added in a quick jaunt up to La Madre Springs for an extra mile. Saw a few people on the trail, but less than I expected for the beginning of a long weekend and beautiful weather. Great scenery and good length, I'll probably be doing this one again!

This was my fourth or fifth hike down to the springs. Took my Aussie friend who was in town for the weekend, to show her a side of Vegas she didn't know existed! Probably the busiest I've seen the trail. Went all the way down to the river, where the water was low enough to walk up stream a bit.

Second summit went faster than the first, but my heart was still racing in places. Definitely a must hike for Zion though!

Went to Zion to watch the Annular eclipse, and wanted to get a moderate hike in before staking out a spot to watch. The Kolob canyons are beautiful, though not nearly as remote as the park describes. Right off of I-15, haha. We went out on the quick little overlook trail (maybe ~1 mile), then headed to Taylor Creek. Nice weather and views, saw a couple little canyon tree frogs. Trail was nice and shady, and pretty busy.

We only went a couple miles up the canyon, as we got a bit of a late start and still wanted to go see Badwater Basin. Wanted to show off some canyons and Death Valley to a visitor from out of town though!

Fun, pretty quick hike. First part is fairly steep, but not too far distance wise. Amazing views from the top of Lake Mead, Las Vegas, and surrounding mountains. Top of the mesa has some pretty good flowers and plants. Descriptions recommend 4wd and high clearance to get to the trailhead, but I think you could make it driving carefully in a sedan.

Started out around 8:30, saw very few others on the trail on the way up. Thought about stopping at Scout's lookout since I am iffy about heights, but with some friendly encouragement from some fellow hikers made it to the top. Amazing views, a little bit of snow around the canyon walls, and after I made it back down had a great sense of accomplishment. Was pretty scared in a few places, but the psychological comfort of the chains was a good aid :D

Met up with some folks from Natural Bridges for a nice day hike. Left from the trailhead at the head of the canyon around 11:30. Hiked about 4-5 miles down canyon, ran into some backpackers. Climbed up to Three Fingers cliff dwelling and had a look around. Water was flowing in the bottom of the canyon, long hike back up. Stopped at the Patio in Blanding for some well deserved milkshakes afterwards.

Took all the spur trails to some of the lesser seen arches. The fun part of this trail is the farther you go, the less people you see. Definitely saw a lot of folks with only a bottle or two of water, although it was probably 100+ degrees in July. Went through a sparse little lithic scatter along the trail to Dark Angel.

Great trail, a little tough in the heat but a gallon of water is plenty. Most of the trail follows a sandy wash, last little bit is a scramble up to the arch. Pretty impressive, huge and angular, not like the ones in Arches. Beautiful views of slickrock and the La Sals.
