Cactus Springs is a small community in Clark County, Nevada located on US Highway 95, about 60 miles (97 km) northwest of Las Vegas in the Mojave Desert. It is near Indian Springs and the Nevada Test Site. Cactus Springs is also the site of The Temple of Goddess Spirituality Dedicated to Sekhmet,[1] the Egyptian goddess, built in 1993, "founded on the principles of peace, goddess spirituality & the gift economy" by Genevieve Vaughan.[2] The annual interfaith Sacred Peace Walk, conducted and organized by the Nevada Desert Experience, is supported, in part, by the temple on the peacewalk's way to the Nevada Test Site's southern gate.[3]
