Saturday, April 21 – Paul has been riding many of the bike trails here in the Boulder City Area. One he has found exceptionally nice is the River Mountain Loop Trail. Planning for the River Mountains Trail began back in 1996.


It is a paved trail, 35 miles long, around the River Mountains. There are many trail heads where you can park the car and enter the trail. Remember, this trail system is in the mountains around the Boulder City, City of Henderson, Lake Mead, and Hoover Dam areas.




Formed by fiery lava erupting from small volcanoes nearly 5 million years ago, the River Mountains have been chiseled by water down cutting its way to the Colorado River.



Being a “flatlander,” Paul is not use to riding in the mountains, and it's taking some conditioning to get use to the many hills.


He goes out twice a day, for about an hour each time riding.....remember his Dear Marsha is in Ohio visiting family. Poor guy! He's getting use to some of the trails but there is one he will NEVER try. That's the 5-mile up the hill (7+percent grade) from the Hoover Dam to Boulder City. That would definitely be a killer!!!

Looking towards Railroad Pass.

He's also using the time, home alone, to get some maintenance chores done around the motor home. Of course, he's doing double duty, working outside and doing daily house work chores.....a man's work is never done!

A note from Marsha on Paul's above paragraph…BOOOOOO HOOOOOO!

Marsha took this picture of the Las Vegas Strip from her plane.

Looks like such a big area on the ground, but so small from the air.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see y'all back real soon. Have a great day.
