A campaign to protect 350,000 acres of the Gold Butte mountain range deep in the southern tooth of Nevada. Enclosed by the Virgin Mountains to the north, Lake Mead to the south and west, and Arizona's Grand Canyon Parashant National Monument to the east, Gold Butte and special wild areas in Nye County include scabrous basalt and limestone peaks scratching at the sky and lowlands strewn with boulder fields and colorful sandstone sculptures tarnished over the eons. Prehistoric rock shelters dating back to 4000 B.C. can be found here, as well as agave roasting pits from as far back as 400 B.C. and reminders of European settlement and the Wild West.
