Only 45 minutes from the Las Vegas Strip lays an area of incredible beauty in the Lake Mead National Recreation Area.

My friend Joe sent me pictures to entice me to take this hike and I was not disappointed.

We started out early one warm May morning. The hike starts out on a small road that is easy hiking. We passed by the Las Vegas Rock Club agate mines. There are all kinds of small mines so watch your step if you choose to get off the main trail.

We were also lucky enough to see many types of wildlife; desert tortoises, horny toads, bats, turtles and buzzards.

Once we entered the Anniversary Narrows we were all breathless. As Larry said “It looks like an open air cave”. It was so beautiful and we had the place to ourselves. Everywhere I looked I was amazed with the overwhelming beauty and rugged terrain.

You can get to the Anniversary Narrows by traveling east on Sahara Avenue to Hollywood, take a left on Hollywood, drive on Hollywood to Lake Mead take a right, and drive to the Lake Mead entrance area, keep driving east, when you come to a fork in the road turn left to Colville Bay. The trail head is at the 16 mile mark, park in the lot beside the road. Head east, when the road washes out, turn to the north and hike up the road. Whenever you have a chance always take the left hand fork. You will not be disappointed in the hike.
