Two weekends ago Quinn and I helped Wyatt take a test ride to school. It is about 1.4 miles from our house to the middle school. The route involves only one major intersection and goes past a nice park and neighborhoods.
Then through the entrance trail of Anthem Hills Park.
Past the soccer fields and skatepark...
...and a playground...
I realized this route was perfect for me to resume my daily walks. So one weekday evening I headed out and walked to the school. I had realized when I was mapping walking routes that there was a trail system behind the school, so I headed up the trail.
It was getting too dark to keep going but I knew I would have to come back!
On Saturday morning I set out early to explore the trails.
Looking back you can see the Las Vegas valley as well as The Strip
There are a lot of stacked rock formations and when I looked back I lucked out and saw a rainbow!
This trail it about 7 miles long. It is so peaceful, even though there are fellow hikers, runners, bikers and dog-walkers sharing the trail.
The above photo was about 3.5 miles from our house.
I look forward to my next hike!
