According to weather.com this afternoon, the average high temperature for the last 10 days of August in my (Henderson) zip code will be over 105 F. We had such a nice, relatively cool summer going, but nature has caught up with us. I have a bunch of trails that I've got lined up to go hit once the weather starts cooling down, and I bet a bunch of you are in the same boat. I'm wondering what you guys are dying to do once it gets cooler.
As for me, I really want to go spend some serious time out in Gold Butte. It'll take several trips of concentrated jeeping to hit everything out there I want to hit, but I am planning on hitting it hard once the nights get a bit cooler. I also have a bunch of trails in the AZ side of the Lake Mead Rec Area that I want to try out as well.
What about you guys? Do you have anything you're looking forward to doing?
we should all try to go camping up in the spring mountains. Last weekend while I was tooling around up there I found out about Macks canyon, it is off of Lee canyon before you get to 158. the main camp area is 4 miles off of Lee canyon and there was a bunch of little camping spots off of the dirt road.
It is all primitive camping, but it is free and up above 7500 ft, so it should be much cooler than the valley.
I did Macks Canyon back in July. The main road won't challenge any of our rigs, but there are a few side roads that were more interesting. And you're right. There were a lot of really good looking camping spots along the road. Somebody screwed up programming the GPS in my JK, though. It shows up as Max Canyon Road.
