Welcome to the Mojave Desert. Las Vegas has both oasis-like escapes and more natural desert lands. There’s something for everyone if you know where and when to look.
We still have to visit Sloan Canyon.
The parks are linked by a series of hiking and biking trails.
And if you enjoy these natural spaces, you might to visit the Ethel M Botanic Garden, a curated collection of desert plants with educational signage! Next to this garden is the Ethel M Store with chocolate for sale and an accessible and hygienic factory tour.
Weather should be great tomorrow – kids have the day off from school. Come out and enjoy this fun and educational event at Sunset Park Lake! #Vegas International #Migratory Bird Day. pic.twitter.com/ERvijAwoTs

I knew that had to be Clark County Wetlands Park — a real treasure. The nature center there is informative and fun.
Sloan Canyon is mesmerizingly quiet. I love roaming around in it. And after a rain the scent of the creosote bushes is almost overpowering. pic.twitter.com/aaE6biXIX9
