After trying out a couple geocaches here in the city, we decided to try our luck on a little longer adventure. Mountain Springs Peak is a less-traveled peak in the southern part of Red Rock National Conservation Area. It does not have a maintained trail, but there are several use paths. Altogether it was about 5 miles and 1,100 feet of elevation gained to reach the peak at ~6,600 feet.
We found two caches and lots of cool logs from previous hikers. The earliest note was from 1970. A fun outing for all!
All of the photos are in the Mountain Springs Peak photo album.
Adam and Danny hit a canyon on the way back from scout camp in Arizona. Lucky Boys!
Danny had a blast getting wet!
Adam’s truck wouldn’t start when they exited the canyon. Luckily, there was a group a few hours behind them. The guys weren’t super pumped about spending another night in the 100 degree weather. But seriously, what would a canyon with my husband be like without a slight mishap??

Ezzy–Dancing Elephants, Haiku.
Danny–Creepy Crocodile, Bullfrog Blues.
Tio Brian and I took Danny, Ezzy, and Brooklynn up to White Pass on our Christmas vacation. It was the first time for the whole McFamily. It was Brooky’s 2nd time and about the 10,000th time for Brian :) We had a blast. Danny was a natural – he went with Brian and Brooky on a longer, higher run, while Ezzy and I got lots of practice on the lower slope.
Brian got some pictures also that can be seen on the Hirschi’s blog. Stay tuned for more Christmas adventures!
