Queho Cave:
This is a fun, although arduous for its length, half-day kayaking and hiking trip in the Black Canyon. The distances are very short; round trip only about 2 milse of paddling and about mile of hiking. But, it is a tough little hike. This trip would be for advanced hikers only.

Queho was an outcast, a renegrade Indian, an alleged murderer, and the subject of much local speculation and colorful history. A survivor who evaded capture by numerous posses for almost 30 years. Here are some good articles and links; Queho - Renegade Indian Outlaw and Queho on Wikipedia.

The put-in point for this Black Canyon trip is Willow Beach, Arizona (just an hour and a half from downtown Las Vegas, Nevada).

A great full day trip includes a visit to Queho's Cave and Frogman Petroglyph.
