Hiking And The Shut-Down: Overlooked Parks
Hiking And The Shut-Down: Overlooked Parks

Listen
AIR DATE: October 10, 2013

Rather than risk a $250 citation for sneaking onto the property of a national park or conservation area that's been closed during the federal shutdown, pick up some ideas for alternate outdoor destinations within easy reach of Las Vegas.

Alan Gegax will tell us about a place, for example, that "takes the 'red' part of Red Rock National Conservation Area and makes it 10 times bigger." He also knows a spot where soft clay cliff faces have eroded, creating slot canyons and narrow trails.
