Mom Camp Day 14: Nature Day! 

No summer experience would be complete without at least one day dedicated to appreciating the great outdoors!  With Vegas temps as high at 115 degrees getting outside time can be a challenge.  We decided to hop in the car and take our nature loving selves to Mount Charleston. 

The day began with a family hike on the Bristlecone Trial and a picnic.

 We spotted the rare Mount Charleston blue butterfly.   They only live 1 to 2 weeks and there could be as few 100 at a time on the mountain.  So we were pretty lucky to see one. 
     
Next up were a small herd of wild horses that were gathered at the ski lodge.
