Fletcher Canyon near Las Vegas, NV

I did this early morning hike last October when I accompanied my wife for her conference. While she was locked up in classes, I was hitting the road towards Mt. Charleston then hiking up this dry canyon that has obviously seen its share of water in the past. It becomes a slot canyon at the turn around point. I suppose that it is possible to scramble up and over the blocking rock formations but I thought better of that. Very nice hike and very cool in the canyon proper; the walls are too steep and close together to allow sunlight to penetrate here.
