Today I took the mountain bike this afternoon and headed to Bistlecone Trail near the end of Nev 156 near the top of Mount Charleston. I parked in the lot and biked uphill more than three miles along a packed road of dirt, rocks and gravel.
Only saw six hikers the whole way.
It was about 70 degrees or so -- warmer in the sun but plenty of snow up there.
It looked like California or Colorado, but it was metro Las Vegas.
