2013/06/06 Rock Scrambling Around Icebox Canyon near Las Vegas
π 2013-06-06 00:00 in Hiking
While in Las Vegas for a work offsite, I went with a few coworkers early-ish (07:00) to beat the heat. By the time we got there, it was already warm in the sun, but nothing like what it would get in the afternoon (110F+), and we got off way before that.

The hike up wasn't too bad. A bit of rock hopping here and there, but nothing too bad. The very last bit however, required more skilled climbing that was a bit more tricky on my running shoes that didn't have good traction on those rocks. I eventually made it to the top after following the footsteps of a few coworkers and got to see the top where there was some water left from the waterfall that sure wasn't flowing anymore since whatever snow it came from had melted a long time ago.

I took a few pictures with google glass, and a few with my camera (those usually look a bit better)
