Hi Campers,
I make an over night solo backpacking trip into the Lake Mead National Recreation Area Desert near Las Vegas, Nevada and backpack/explore the red rock valley called Bowl of Fire with it’s massive cliffs and strange red Rock formations. I hike and discover the wonders ( petrified wood/ arches/ deceased :(desert bighorn sheep ) of a solo over night trip into this desert paradise!

America’s First National Recreation Area
Swim, boat, hike, cycle, camp and fish at America’s first and largest national recreation area. With striking landscapes and brilliant blue waters, this year-round playground spreads across 1.5 million acres of mountains, canyons, valleys and two vast lakes. See the Hoover Dam from the waters of Lake Mead or Lake Mohave, or find solitude in one of the park’s nine wilderness areas.
