Snow Shoe Hike 2013 Makes Winter a Wonderland
Winter can become a wonderland during the overnight show shoe hike at Camp Lee Canyon Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 26-27. Families, couples, single adults or seniors can spend the night in the rustic heated cabins of Camp Lee Canyon, sit by the fire and hike the Bristlecone Trail. Cost is $15 per person, and the first 20 people to register for each hike will receive free snowshoe rental. Space is limited. Registration can be paid at the Mountain Crest Recreation Center, 4701 N. Durango Drive, or online at www.ClarkCountyNV.gov/parks.
Those who don’t feel like hiking can bask in the firelight or play cards in the recreation hall. A pancake breakfast will be provided on Sunday morning, but otherwise, participants are responsible for their own food, beverages and bedding as well as transportation to Camp Lee Canyon, located 45 minutes northwest of Las Vegas on Interstate 95.
Those interested can call Mountain Crest Recreation Center at (702) 455-1905. Clark County Parks and Recreation also can be found on social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook.
