Hiking Calico Basin

Or perhaps walking is a more fitting description. Regardless, I’ve been wanting to test myself with a walk around Calico Basin for a bit now, today was the day. Since I have CHF, or Congestive Heart Failure diagnosed in 2002, I have to take the up-bound portion of the walk very slowly, making frequent stops. Meanwhile others walk past at a nice pace. Showoffs. Just kidding! But I do miss being able to do more athletic stuff.

The other reason for the walk was to get some new wonderful rock photos. More rocks! Got rocks? We have em’ here! Turns out I snapped exactly one gig’s worth of photos today so I’ll have to search through them for the best ones, here’s a start. If you visit Las Vegas in the future or are returning for another visit, get away from the Vegas Strip, there is so much more to the Las Vegas area than the glitz and craziness of the Strip!

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
