My birthday weekend was very eventful, and overall a fantastic success. I'm not going to lie, its been a real struggle and has taken me a bit of time to recover from all the adventures over the weekend. However, I'm back and excited to share my favorite birthday moment. The best part of the weekend with one of my best friends was spending the day exploring Red Rock Canyon and enjoying some relaxation in the mountains.
We decided to hike Calico Tanks, which is about a two and a half mile hike up through the mountains to a hidden water pocket. We took our sweet time and enjoyed every moment of the day. The weather was literally perfect, we had everything we needed, and we soaked it all in for what its worth. The hike along the way was full of beauty and history. A little further up through the hills, we reached the top where we got a panorama view of the city of Las Vegas.
This hike was by far one of the best things I've done in Nevada yet, and reaching the top was a satisfying moment. I highly recommend the Calico Tanks for all you explorers out there. It's an exciting feeling stepping my way into my thirties, and one thing is for sure, I'm looking forward to exploring more at Red Rock Canyon in these years to come.
