During a week in February we were cruising down Highway 95 from Vegas to Laughlin and Judy observed a sign pointing
out a side road to CHRISTMAS TREE PASS !!!!!!!!!!! She remembered Kenny and Zelma our Lucas County,
Ia. neighbors mentioning how scenic the area was. Soooooooooo, needless to say we had to check this out. ( Now for the rest of the story.)
This super highway leads to grapevine trail which meanders thru Christmas tree pass
Remember Lewis and Clark??? Judy sent me to find a way out.
Judy is scouting the area. No we are not lost!!!
I was able to locate the Christmas Trees. Thousands of these little fella's.
This highway sign caused us to drive further.
A fork in the road!! Late afternoon 25 miles thru the pass at 3 mph in 4x4????
Can you tell we have continued to climb for over 12 miles and the road seems to vanish regularly.
We still had about 6 miles of the listed 25miles to travel. It's 4:00 pacific time. 5:00 is sun set.
We really found it to be beautiful up here in the late afternoon.
We called this standing Rock. A flat rock was balanced on a vertival rock in the middle of the pic.
WE are at the top!!!! Late in the day looking toward setting sun!!!
We made it!!!!! Judy and I agreed, LETS START THESE EXPEDITIONS EARLIER!!!!!!!!
