In the Spring Mountains north of the Las Vegas valley I've found a great area to backpack and explore in all seasons. There is even a year-round small stream hidden there.
So I'll be backpacking in late this summer, establish my base camp and do day hikes to explore. At 9,400 ft. among Ponderosa pines this is a very idyllic area.
And in winter I'll backcountry ski in with my Tele skis and climbing skins. A snug camp in a snowstorm is something to relish and remember. I''ll be testing my winterized SCARP II tent. My winterized Moment DW solo tent has already been up there and did very well last winter.
Mmmmm... visualizing my winter camp and I can almost smell the sage sausage and buckwheat cakes cooked on my Sidewinder/Inferno cone wood stove. Luckily no bears in the Spring Mountains, just mountain lions who mind their own business.
