That's cool up there! I spread some of my mother and father's ashes just beyond that a few years ago. Living in Las Vegas for 53 years my mom always wanted to have a house up in Red Rock, the closest we got was Sun City Summerlin! I told her when she passed away I was going to take her ashes up there and she could have her house in Red Rock. I know it's technically Calico Basin but still the same 🙂
Today for #ThankYouThursday we would like to highlight Alan Snel, a business sponsor and author in support of Red Rock Canyon.
In his book, 'Long Road Back to Las Vegas: How Las Vegas and the Golden Knights healed a journalist's wounds' he tells how "a distracted motorist drove his car into bicyclist/journalist Alan Snel while Snel was bicycling in Florida. The violent crash knocked out Snel. But not for long. Three months later, Snel returned to Las Vegas to launch a dynamic news website in June 2017 called LVSportsBiz.com that documents Las Vegas' exploding sports industry."
Issues. About the hwy !!
Try getting out & hiking calico. All. The turn outs seeing people. T.P & dog crap. All over.
The turn outs and trails have been a shit fest for awhile
Dog & people
Simple rule pick it up take it out.
Show some iniative and fill
A bag full of crap
To bad the Darwin's can't. Get Tix. For being slobs
Even black Velvet gettiing bad inplaces
Sigh. Some folks just. Suck
My rant is over
All I did last summer is pick up household trash while working for the BLM. That is a sign of the times, nobody respects public land.
I really hope that was dumped, and didn't inadvertently fall off of a truck. I almost hit a dumpster once that was sitting in the middle of a freeway in CA.
It's everywhere....no gates needed, for gosh sakes. It happens in Valley of Fire....after the gates.
I was out they're this afternoon; the recliners are gone.
There was a set of recliners a day after the fridge!!😿
We have really good trash service in Vegas. They will take appliances, you just need to call and give a head’s up. No excuse for dumping.
And someone else put two reclining chairs at the entrance of the model airplane field.... People are junking up the place.
I get out to lake Mead often, gates do not stop it unfortunately.
Saw that yesterday on the side of the road and an old sofa. Makes me so angry
I saw a recliner chair on the side of the road before and I saw the refrigerator yesterday
Lake Mead is open 24 hours a day. Red Rock? Not so much.
Honestly that looks like it maybe fell out or off of a vehicle, not that it's justified leaving it.
Old refrigerator dumped on side of roadway. This is everywhere. What I hate the most is gabage bags. Meat bones etc that wild animals smelln rip the bags open n winds spread it to the far corners n the trees have unsavory items hanging.
If you can drive that far to dump it you can drive to the dump instead.
I saw a couch dumped on the side of 159 the other day!
There are other much larger issues than making that highway gated.
So someone took the time to drive it out to Redrock but couldn’t drive it to the dump?? Ridiculous!
Not just garbage what's up with all the glas? People can be such a-ho***les. No respect for our Earth whatsoever 🙁
This makes me so angry
Seriously??? And how much further/more time would it have been to take it to the dump to dispose of it properly? What the hell is wrong with some people?!?!?
Agreed! I saw that last weekend- so ridiculous! Who would do that?
i hope it was empty inside
Oh my gosh!!! Crazy!
That would really increase property values at tax payers expense...
Thank you so much for coming out and helping with the cleanup!
I am sad this has to be done, but so thankful for all of you who helped! I live in Northern Nevada, but my twins live in the Vegas area and I visit for at least a few weeks every year and have hiked most of the trails in Red Rock. The beauty of the area never fails to take my breath away. Thank you again for taking care of our sacred Red Rock!
Thank you so much for your hard work! It is appreciated!

We are happy to announce that we have been selected as a recipient of the Buffalo Exchange Tokens for Bags® program from January through June 2020. You can now donate to us just by shopping at Buffalo Exchange.
Instead of a plastic bag, the Tokens for Bags® program offers every customer who makes a purchase one “token” valued at five cents (the cost to produce a bag) to donate to one of several local charities selected by the store. That means you can help out our cause just by shopping! The program has generated over $803,000 for hundreds of local nonprofit organizations since 1994 and has kept over 16.06 million plastic bags out of the environment.
