While in Mesquite in October, I happened on to Gold Butte Days, a festival with food, entertainment and art booths.

While there, I learned about the effort to create the Gold Butte National Conservation Area, and I saw pictures of ancient Indian rock art, beautiful canyons and incredible scenic vistas. As a regular visitor to Red Rock Canyon, I am convinced that we need to provide the same kind of designation for Gold Butte. We need more places like this for hiking, camping and outdoor recreation.

You can bet that I will be back in Mesquite soon to spend a couple of days exploring this incredible treasure.
