Amy and I are on our 44-day road trip to kick off our year of travel. We’re taking a break from the work we’ve been doing for 25-years and want to start new careers in travel. We’re not sure where we’ll end up, but we have a long time to get there.
On May 27th, we left Santa Monica and the first stop was Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. We took a beautiful hike on First Creek Trail through cactus and into the desert canyon.
This was our first day on the road and I trained for my July backpacking trip by packing many things into my backpack including chairs and a gallon of water. the hike was pretty easy, but the 35 pound pack made it feel like I was hiking up a big mountain.
It was getting late, so we headed to Red Rock Casino and had a great meal while watching LeBron advance to the Championship for the 8th year in a row. He’s amazing.
We stayed in an airbnb for $35/night and then cruised the strip. We started in the county center and Artists District.
