We ended up hiking a lighter trail – as my knee was acting up. 4.4 miles there and back still though, and we got to see some old rail road tunnels origanally made when building up the Hoover Dam.
It was a very nice trip. :)I celebrated turning 26 by turning my legs to jelly! YAY!!
My husband wants to know what I want to do for my birthday next week. I have decided a long tiring family hike and picnic out to the caverns in the Mojave desert.
I am so happy I have this goal, it keeps me motivated and reminds me of what makes me really happy. It is so easy to forget the simple pleasures and to be distracted by television, or daily grinds… it’s easy to get out to nature, but hard to remember sometimes.
So next Wednesday… I will keep it simple and out in the middle of no where! Excellent!
This seems to be a constant goal for me.. when I think I have given up… I find more new and interesting places to explore here in Las Vegas. For the Thanksgiving week we went to the Valley of Fire and Mt. Charleston here in Las Vegas. If you are ever in the area – they both offer some excellent hikes.
We hikes for days straight it seemed, and by the time our unTurkey day was over – we had racked up 7 miles! Not too bad for me being out of shape with a 6 year old in tow! It was so much fun!
More pics from both places are in my flickr account. Go take a look!
Now that I am in Vegas, I do plan to hike a bunch of Red Rock Canyon… once the weather cools a bit!
Haven’t hiked in weeks… last one was actually on Mother’s Day, but it was more a short walk in the wilderness than hiking… I think I will get on this one this weekend…
Made it up to Santiago! Woohoo!
Am going to go die now…. for a little while at least!
Planning on hiking Santiago mountain peek this weekend. Should be fun… Haven’t done it before. HOWEVER, there are fires about, so we will see if we have to change our destination due to the air quality. But we are definitely going this weekend!
Had surgery in Oct. 2006… and as I am getting better I am making it a goal to hike more. It is the one form of exercise I REALLY enjoy and it is a great way for my husband, son, and I to get out and have family time without modern technology interfering. So far, I have been hiking each weekend nearly for the last month and it is so worth it. I anm determined to keep it up for another few months and on before I consider my goal complete.
