About 15 miles north from the Las Vegas Strip is Kyle Canyon, which goes west for 20 miles or so to Mt Charleston - the mountain and resort area.

Eventually you can go no further and you end up in the lodge parking lot :-)

Unfortunately, both day-use areas were having some construction going on, so there was no access to the hillside or trails :-(

The elevation is about 7,500 feet so at some times of the year this may be snowed in.

It was perhaps 80 degrees on this day.

A volunteer fire department.

Some territorial markings.

Mail boxes.

You are here.

A regular fire department across the street from the volunteer fire department.

The library from a distance.

Another optimistic sign, closer to the freeway end of Kyle Canyon.

It's a nice drive. Kyle Canyon has a nice hike (in a separate thread).

Nice views Kyle and they named the streets after you I see. This is where Terri and I honeymooned, many moons ago.
