The Pittman Wash Henderson Nevada A Greenbelt Energy Field
An Attraction To The Pittman Wash
There is a peaceful easy feeling that seems to pass through the inner spirit of most who experience a bit of time walking, hiking or biking the Pittman Wash. It radiates from passers by as feet pad across the asphalt trail. The Pittman Wash is paved for easy accessibility. From that vantage point the scene is crushed rock leading to the edge of a deep ravine. Standing on the lip of the wash is the meandering path filled with all the attraction of a greenbelt energy field.

Getting a Positive Energy Fix at the Pittman Wash
A place for solitude and sunshine awaits you at this wash. Filled with all kinds of vegetation that starts at the top near the walkway, this part of the Pittman Wash is managed by the city of Henderson and a boat load of volunteers. Small pockets of inviting landscape mark the trails. Benches and trash bins, dog friendly postings and night lighting are just a tad of what to expect. The plantings, in pockets along the wall separating the residential neighborhoods from the wash, blend nicely with the natural growth along the lip of this crevice in the Earth. The beauty of the beast always fills me with positive energy.
Take Hiking Shoes and a Camera
There is plenty to take in as you walk along the pathway, but if you like to break into the brush and get off the beaten path, put on some hiking shoes and grab your camera. The wild flowers are amazing and call out to be the subject matter in photographs. Small reptiles, lizards and snakes are often seen crossing the path too. Bird watching is not my cup of tea but there are a big variety of birds at the Pittman Wash and they too make great subjects for the lens. One of my favorite sights to see are the wild Partridge or maybe they are quail with a curly top on their heads. They scurry through the brush always two steps ahead of their human stalkers.
