Wonderful mountain biking trails in Amarillo.

It is nice to be back in Amarillo and it has been great to see Charlene. To check out new areas in Amarillo, I went to a bike shop and asked about places to ride. They gave me the locations of several places and I was able to try out one route today that was called The Children’s Home Trails. This trail has its own Facebook page and I think they use it for community fund raisers. It was fantastic to be out on a bike trail enjoying the countryside. I saw rabbits, a roadrunner, and beautiful views. I also came across 3 eggs about 4 inches high that had hatched. I have no idea what type of eggs these were. Some of the trails had signs naming a trail “Spaghetti,” “Fence,” and “Murphy.” Several times I could not make it up the steep, rugged limestone rocks and needed to walk my bike through a section. I thoroughly enjoyed myself riding all over the trails.

I was the only person riding my bike, although I met three people running on the trail. One lady agreed to take my picture along the path. She then showed me a photo of a rattlesnake that had killed a rabbit on the path where I had just ridden. I forgot about snakes. I do not like snakes. I do not like them in a zoo and I especially do not like then on a bike trail. The lady told me to be careful with the high grass down by the creek. I decided to go up a different trail. Gratefully, I never saw any snakes.
