Finding Relief From Triple Digit Temps At 8.200 Feet
I still say people in Las Vegas either don't know or appreciate the fact that when it's 104 degrees in Vegas valley it's this temperature on Nevada SR 158, also known as Deer Creek Road, an amazing strip of asphalt linking Lee Canyon and Kyle Canyon roads at elevations in the 6,600 to 8,200 range.
Sure, it's a lot of climbing to get to this elevation.
Actually, this amount of elevation gain.
But it was worth the mountain climbing.
I drove up Kyle Canyon Road with the bicycle and parked near this new National Forest Service visitors center and hike-about area.
Not too shabby at all.
