Pahranagat Wildlife Refuge in Nevada
Kevin and I set out from Las Vegas to see this wildlife refuge that I’ve heard so much about from Nina’s Wheelingit.us blog.
Wildlife refuge stamps are in the visitor center for the blue goose stamp books. The staff is friendly and helpful.
On the walking trail around the visitor center we saw this buck. I thought he was a statue until his leg moved. Also, near this spot was a female hiding in the brushes.
This building called the “Petroglyph Cabin” is on the walking trail by the visitor center.
American White Pelicans in Nevada? This pelican must be stopping for a break at Pahranagat before heading to the coast.
We saw several places to camp in a motorhome or a tent at the wildlife refuge. Its a beautiful place to see wildlife, birdwatch & camp.
Camping in Williams, AZ using our Passport America membership we stayed at Canyon Motel & RV park (more on this later)about 1 hr from the Grand Canyon entrance. I expected lots of traffic driving to the entrance but there was hardly any at 8:00 in the morning.
The main fun in the grand canyon for a couple on a budget was walking the trails in search of the best view of the grand canyon. We got our National Park Passport book stamped at the store then started the hunt for the perfect view. We walking part of the Rim Trail starting at the Mund view. It was beautiful but not perfect. We drove on to the Grandview and then the Desert View Watchtower. Those views are my favorites.
I had a few Wow! moments at the Grand Canyon.
I looked out at the canyon and realized just how incredible the world is.
Grand Canyon National Park is full of big WOW moments. I hope you find your WOW moments at the park.
