13-Apr-2001 -- Today I went to N36 W114 from Las Vegas Nevada. Going down Highway 93, I turned left on Pierce Ferry Road and proceeded to the small town of Meadview, AZ. in the Lake Mead Recreation Area. From there I headed almost due east on Meadview Ave until I ran out of town, at which point I intersected with LMRA trail #145, which I followed to a point where I was as close as I could get to the confluence.

Turning right I rode up a wash for about a mile until I reach a point where the size of the river rock in the wash made further motorized travel impossible. From there I hiked up the wash about a mile and a quarter to the confluence. It was a beautiful day in the desert, as almost all of the local wildflowers were in bloom as well as many of the prickly pear cacti.

In picture #5, the small town of Meadview is in the distance behind the top shaped cactus, second from the left-hand side of the photo.

For picture #6, I had ridden up the wash approx. 1 mile from Trail number 145. From here I hiked up the wash 1 1/4 miles.
