Silly Mountain Hike

Teresa and I wanted to get some exercise in today, and thought why not enjoy the beautiful outdoors with a hike, rather than inside the fitness centre.

Silly Mountain is only a couple of minutes from our resort, and is a popular hiking spot.  For some reason, we never took the time to check this one out.

We wondered how it got it's name, but nothing on the signage gave any clues.

Near the base is a botanical garden, with all the popular desert plants identified.

We were pleasantly surprised to find out that we could get a good workout on these paths.

In fact, one of the paths is called "The Huff n Puff" trail.

After getting our hearts pumping, we took the short drive home, and got all cleaned up for a happy hour at an excellent Mexican restaurant called Los Gringos Loco.

They have great prices on drinks and meals, from 2pm until 5pm.

Bob and Janet, along with Ed and Marilyn were with us,  but unfortunately, Ginger was not feeling well, so Jesse stayed home to nurse her back to health.

We had a great time as always, and really enjoyed the offerings.  I am sure we will be back again.

We really did not need to eat supper, so Teresa headed off to do more laundry, leaving me alone to get into my usual mischief.

Sure hope Ginger is feeling better soon, so the gang can be reunited.


  1. Sounds like a Silly name for a mountain, glad you enjoyed the hike.

  2. maybe too many folks had a few too many cocktails before heading up Silly MT...

  3. Never heard of that place before. Looks like a nice hiking spot for sure.
