Beyond Bootleg Canyon

We explored one of  the many tails in the mountains behind us on this beautiful day.  Flowers everywhere!  Spring in the desert with a bonus.... a rattlesnake!  Have not seen one of those in a while.  This guy was young, about 15 inches:

view of the Las Vegas strip and down town with Mt. Charleston in the background

this area is one large lave field and it is evident in the rock formations

the trail you see takes one over to the Black Mountain lookout where we hiked a couple of weeks ago

  1. Snake! How exciting. Lots of flowers too. Since we are higher up now there are few flowers and snakes (rattlers, anyhow) are not out yet.

Here are some pics from the Sheep Creek Canyon Geological Area, a must do drive when you go to Flaming Gorge.  We drove up it in the morning...
