Youth baseball, softball seasons continue though mid-June
The 2018 spring volleyball league ended this week with Synergy, primarily UNLV volleyball players and 702 Sand volleyball players, dominating the double-elimination tournament. Heavy Hitters, primarily made-up-of Basic High School graduates, came up from the loser bracket defeating last year’s champions—the Volleygirls. They met Synergy in the championship game, and they went for three games in a tough match-up. Synergy prevailed with a 15-8 win.
Everyone loves sand dunes. Perhaps because most of us come from climates where dunes don’t occur, they seem exotic and we associate them with romance and adventure. Many travel thousands of miles to gaze upon them, but those who live in Southern Nevada can find outstanding examples relatively near. Some of the tallest in North America, Eureka Dunes, are in Death Valley National Park.
Volleyball league’s top four to face off in tournament
If you plan on a spring outing to Southern Utah, especially along Scenic Byway 12 to Bryce Canyon National Park or the Escalante area, an easy yet rewarding side trip is Kodachrome Basin State Park.
Located on the Arizona Strip and the Colorado River, Lee’s Ferry makes a great getaway for those who like remote areas for hiking or just kicking back for a night or two. This one offers the bonus of being a historic site.
Zion National Park in Utah is a favorite spring getaway for Southern Nevada’s rock climbing community. But before you head there, be aware there are a few closures and changes in effect the next couple of months.
