Ascent Trip Report

My wife and I went out to Vegas to do some hiking. We started out in the Spring Mountains with the intent of going up Griffith peak but due to fire the trails on the part of the range were closed. So we spent a day hiking Mary Jane Falls and Fletcher Canyon on 10/6. Then the next day 10/7 we hiked Valley of Fire and on 10/8 we went back to the Spring Mountains and hiked Fletcher Peak, the High Point and Mummy Springs. On 10/9 we hiked Red Rock Canyon and all in all this trip was some of the best hiking I have ever done. The Federal Government done a great job with the trails in this range, I love the way they are cut, maintained and with all the switchbacks it makes for easy class 1 hiking. I want to trip back someday and do Mt. Charleston.
