more Red Rock

Red Rock is the 'conservation area' just west of Vegas. We go there to hike and walk around, but it also has a long bike route that is very well used.

A while back several companies started renting scooters so that tourists could get around town easier. Realizing that people often fell off of these two wheeled vehicles they then came up with three wheeled motorcycles which don't require a fancy drivers license to operate, and are fairly easy to use while still keeping the rider out in the sun. Somebody thought of putting a fiberglass body on these to make them seem more like small cars, the result is these vehicles, seen on the Red Rock loop




In response, here is E riding her bike around the living room. I don't ask, she was 5.





Don't know if the training wheels have come off yet.

I find it totally baffling that to experience the natural environment some sort of powered vehicle is thought necessary.

It looks so gorgeous - I wish our mountains looked like that!

I've seen people driving those screwball little things on Charleston getting to and from Red Rock. They can't be very safe in traffic and who would want to be out in the sun anyway! Not to mention they are expensive to rent! But what the heck, as long as the tourists come & spend money it's ok with me.

Great post, I've been to Vegas so many times and heard a lot about Red Rock and have yet to go there. Looks like a lot of fun and those cars are so cool, like Power Wheels for adults. haha...

Cute pics of her on her bike, I think she'll be out of training wheels in no time :)
