First Hike of Year 2014

January 2nd started off real slowly.  We didn't really know where we were going.  So, we drove over to Grand Central Station (AKA: The Red Rock Visitor Center).  We quizzed the kind volunteers and paid staff about changes to what's called the "System Trails" during Year 2013 and then decided to check out a trail we've talked about for years.

It's called the Llama Trail we we think it first appeared on the radar 4-5-6 years ago, maybe longer.  Us Rimrockers can't tell time very well, living here on The Edge of The Flat Earth as we do.  It turned out to be a perfect hike for us today.  We covered a mere 4 miles in a little over 3 hours.  Only two hours were spent actually hiking so we kept our 2 mph average intact.  We spent one hour 11 minutes lolly gagging around, having lunch, taking picture, doing whatever. You know the drill.  It's quite a fun trail and all the photos in this albums actually have captions.
