Dates to Remember and Boot Boulder

Starting tomorrow, April 1st, the Scenic Loop Road at Red Rock Canyon stays open until 8 pm! This marks the start of prime Red Rock hiking season. You can begin a hike at noon and have 8 hours before the Scenic Loop closes. However, currently it is getting dark around 7 pm.

On April 9th, I am giving a slide show for the Sierra Club about some of the best routes and peaks in southern Nevada. The show features the lesser known hikes that most people do not know about.
Time: 7:30 pm
Where: NV Power 6226 W. Sahara - Wengert Room See Map
Notes: You do not have to be a member of the Sierra Club to attend, nor will they try and get you to become a member. This is a FREE event.

On May 7th, I am giving the same slide show at REI in Henderson. The slide show begins at 7 pm. This is also a free event.

Boot Boulder **********************************************************

Thanks to Doug, Kenny, Dave and Jen I finally got my photo of Boot Boulder with hikers on top.
I have wanted to do this for several years. Despite being a demanding route, everyone did great. Once we got everyone on top of the Boot, I turned on the walkie talkie and told Jen (who was at Willow Springs parking lot) to start shooting. She took lots of good photos.
Here's a slide show of the hike.
