That doesn't mean we can't still develop more recreational resources and those are good things as long as we have the means to take care of what we have. It just means we need to do so in a normal budgetary manner based on normal revenue streams, rather than borrowing twenty million bucks for non-essential projects. Stay tuned.
Back when Richard Hannemann had an active political blog, he often said that some in Los Alamos always want us to be something we are not rather than something we are. I think he was right. We are so goddamn spoiled up here. We gotta keep up with (or more likely, we have to out-do in honor of our Uncle Sam generated wealth) the Joneses and every other Tom, Dick, and Harry community as far as recreational facilities even though most or all of those communities can't hold a candle to our natural recreational resources.
As far as one of those trails one can trip over, here, below, is one of my favorites: The trail out to the end of Kwage Mesa, which I can get to by riding out the front door and enduring a couple minutes of Mr. Pavement as I struggle mightily to get to singletrack.
So, go ride your bike.
