Black Canyon Wilderness, Lake Mead NRA

The 17,000+ acre Black Canyon Wilderness is home to some really rugged country. We hiked down Boy scout Canyon and we negotiated the many pour overs, man eating cats claw bushes, challenging route finding, and an interesting first step over the lip. The Black Canyon is National Park quality and the rough country doesn't give up it's secrets easily...but hey we wouldn't want it any other way.
