It is late July in Las Vegas and the weather is hot, humid and sometimes plain uncomfortable. It is difficult to spend a lot of time playing outside when it is like this. I prefer to keep on getting out and enjoying myself withouyt the confinement of four walls. But it means making sure to DRINK, DRINK, DRINK or find myself spread eagle on a trail somewhere like a bad episode of Death Valley Days.
The last week or so of July always feels like summer is endeing. This, despite the fact that the weather will not cool for a couple of months. The best of kayaking for the summer is yet to come and the days are still nice and long. I still like going to Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area when it is hot, even though people say it is crazy to do it. But I am not the only one because every weekend there are bikes, hikers, climbers and walkers all over that place. It is only Tuesday, but my mind is outside playing, and I cannot wait to get there!
