Our lovely weather had returned and having a few Holiday Days to play I took my 8 year old daughter for a ride in Boulder City (home of the famous Bootleg Canyon). Anyway, we didn't ride Bootled this time, instead we road the RailRoad Tunnel trail. The tunnels were created for a spur line to bring supplies in for the building of the Hoover Dam. Now, it has been convert to a trail and eventually it will be open all the way to the dam itself once the Park Service removes some storage facilities.
It is only 2.5 miles each way and almost completely flat -- but fun for the kids. Last time I took my daughter we watched a prarie falcon playing in the cliff above us. Yesterday, only sight seeing helicopters were visible in the sky above.
It's funny how competitive 8 year old girls can be. I asked if she wanted me to get a photo of the helicopters flying overhead -- she said yes and as I got the camera out she took off down the trail. When she came back she informed me that she rode farther than me.
