Ash Meadow Wildlife Refuge- the refuge is almost 2 hours from Las Vegas NV, small visitor center, stamp for blue goose book, birdwatching, walking trails, picnicking, pets on a leash.
There are four Wildlife Refuges within 2 hours of Las Vegas so far Desert Wildlife Refuge is my favorite. I hope to see Pahranagat & Moapa Valley National Wildlife Refuge next time.
It was a cold day when we drove to Ash Meadow Wildlife Refuge. Kevin and I were unable to walk around the trails this time but several brave people bundled up and had no problem with the cold weather. (we bought Winter gear after this trip)
