Our second stop, Bootleg Canyon. File this under glad we went, but we probably won’t be back. It’s just not really our type of riding. Amelia found it to be unforgiving, not flowy, and somewhat intimidating. It seemed to me like a place where mountain biking trails shouldn’t exist. It was quite different from any other place we’ve been. I did get the quote of the trip from a maintenance guy in the RV park. He was probably my age but looked a lot older, and his riding days were over at least 10 years ago. When I was inquiring about the trails he said, “There’s no soft rocks up there.”
We spent 3 nights at Canyon Trail RV Park. We picked it because you can ride from the park to the trails. It was a really nice RV park, as far as RV parks go. There was only the occasional waif of cigarette smoke. And Boulder City is not Vegas, so that’s a plus in its column.
Sorry no pictures of the Hoover dam. If you haven’t taken the tour of it, you should, it’s quite fascinating. We did it a couple of decades ago.
