Ireteba Peaks Wilderness Area

EP-P100085605/07/2013 Trip Notes: On 05/07/13 my friend Harvey Smith and I decided to visit the Ireteba Peaks Wilderness Area, located deep into a wild and remote part of the Lake Mead National Recreation Area. We drove nearly 15 miles in on an old dirt mining road in search of the Rockefeller Mine. We spent nearly the whole day hiking to and exploring dozens of old, abandoned mine shafts, adits, and tunnels. There was so much to see in this area that we are planning another trip here sometime in the fall when the hiking will be a little cooler.
