Everyone who lives in the park year round is very surprised by the weather.
Normally, Pahrump has very little rain and even less snow. Well, we have been getting more than normal of both.
The mountains make for distracting views when the the rain stops. Especially when the tops are covered in snow.
Both east and west are mountain ranges that extend far to the north and south. Our plan before we arrived was to hike in the mountains in preparation of the Grand Canyon. More on that later. The weather did not cooperate.
Almost nothing grows on the mountains other than several types of cactus and some tough grasses.
We are a couple who have started on a new adventure...
