The surround is all BLM including the land containing the road to access the place.

Nice desert ranch place...but would not obviously outpoint Pahrump or the Sandy Valley.
What other areas are that close to Red Rock Canyon?

Not sure what the views are like.

Seems like it will be very secluded and my guess is the real estate will be in very high demand.

Calico Basin is actually closer to LV and closer to Red Rock. And there are a couple of large old mining operations and such near by. And good old Summerlin continues to build in that direction.

And if you want seclusion head over to Cold Creek. Even the power company won't intrude.

We went there yesterday to pay our last respects. It was packed! Had lunch, talked to Alan (Bonnie's son) for a bit, he said most of the animals (including the turtles in the restaurant pond) had been adopted. Overall had a nice time, but there was a somber vibe going on. I'll miss this place for sure.

I'm taking the kids tomorrow.
We've been several times but never made it to the petting zoo portion.

Maybe take some of your award winning pictures to put up in the chat thread. Help preserve its memories a bit. I'm sure others would enjoy them.

Went there a few times when I lived in Vegas back in the 1980's. It was always a nice break from the city.

There were a lot of people there. I couldn't really get many shots of the animals.

Just bring a really big sack of money. The prices there are insane.
