A good friend told me about some excellent mountain bike trails outside of Las Vegas. I had a wonderful time riding on these trails and enjoying different type of cactus from Phoenix and Tucson as well as the incredible colors in the mountains! The ride was fun and I thoroughly enjoyed myself! Well, maybe not riding up out of the town of Blue Diamond! It was steep riding out of Blue Diamond and I almost melted into a grease spot on the trail while I was pedaling uphill!

The colors of the rocks and the intensity of the cactus was amazing! I kept seeing amazing sites over and over. I loved this network of trails! Some people rode horses, some people hiked, but most people were riding mountain bikes. I loved riding here!!
