Red Rock Canyon Travel Blog› entry 1 of 21 › view all entries
Hiking the morning after a night of partying and intoxication is not by any measure an easy thing to do; rising to the early morning sun in preparation for a hike of all things, turned out to be less exciting at 9:30 am, nonetheless the Travbuddies convened at the appointed location - Red Rock Canyon visitor center. The Red Rock Canyon hike was scheduled for 10:00 a.m, but did not actually start until a few minutes after 10:30 am. A group of 11 less enthusiastic hikers namely: Africancrab (Me), Melanie, Jennifer, Joy, Jillian, James, Matt, Sal, RJ, Tracy, and John set off in 4 cars with James driving his rented convertible, Melanie in her car, RJ took Africancrab and Sal while John drove alone.
The Hike: The Ice Box Trail is considered a difficult hike with 2.
We took a break and managed to climb one of the boulders for a photo shoot (smile). Matt made for the entertainer throwing around English words that are pronounced rather poor in the American version of the English language. For example how do you pronounce TUBE, WATER, and ALUMINIUM ??? Did you get that right? Well ask Matt (www.travbuddy.com/mattrilla) he was the English teacher along the way. I must confess I have always had a problem with the way Americans pronounce the word "Alu-mi-nium", they say "alumi-num" sounds funny.

PS: “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” Mark Twain
