Teaming up for Gold Butte

Photos by Andy Sanchez
Friends of Nevada Wilderness went out to Gold Butte for National Public Lands Day to support the Friends of Gold Butte in their good work to restore and protect the beautiful landscape and cultural resources of Gold Butte for present and future generations. Special thanks to all the volunteers from both groups who worked so hard in the hot sun to make a difference for the Wild.

Late Summer on the North Loop Trail

I love the North Loop Trail. It never seems as crowded as going up the South Loop and the views of Mt Charleston seem just a bit more majestic. Here's a few that I never got around to posting until now; it was a cool summer day it look and felt like fall. I just couldn't capture the dancing light of Mummy the way I wanted...maybe the old man was playing with me.

Fall Colors at Mt Charleston

Trail Canyon is one of my favorite hikes and maybe one of the steepest...Whew. I hiked up there to see the fall colors and I was not disappointed. Maybe a week before the middle section is at it's peak but the upper mountain is exploding with color right now.

Desert Water Fall

Water in the desert gives life...takes the browns and turns them green. Cool, clear, and fresh. This little s backcountry stream was flowing strong for this late in the year. What a welcome sight...Ha ha, I'm not going to tell where it need to explore

The only place in the world you'll find the Palmer's Chipmunk is in the Spring Mountains of southern Nevada.

Starting very slowly but it will explode very soon fall colors have arrived in Spring Mountains
