Mountains around Las Vegas Valley
Mountains are my favorite place on earth. There is nowhere else I would rather be.
There are over 100 peaks within an hour's drive from Las Vegas Valley offering great vistas, unique rock formations, solitude and a variety of both desert and alpine flora and fauna.
Some I have climbed only once, others tens of times. All are great memories.
Please share your favorite and special photos of Southern Nevada mountains that you have taken.
