That would be awesome! I'm going to gather names of interested people shortly and take a poll to see who wants to camp in Valley of Fire, or more throughout the trip in general (spend more time out toward Valley of Fire).
I'm going to pick up my kids at an event in Clovis April 1 and +Lori Hibbett
and I will spend eight days with them on the road, including a few extra scouting days around Valley of Fire. Earlier today I was reading the Las Vegas section added to the Photographing the Southwest
guide book (in Volume 2 - Arizona). I'd like to explore the Gold Butte Byway to Little Finland, Redstone, Lovell Narrows slot, the Calico Hills near Red Rock Canyon, and other nearby areas before the group arrives. Some of the trails are pretty remote and require high clearance, and with my crappy stock SUV not having a limited slip differential, it would be handy to have a backup vehicle with a tow chain or winch!
