Red Rock Canyon – Las Vegas

We must remember to bring our better digital camera.

IMG_1235 Our little Canon point-and-shoot camera cannot begin to give justice to the scenery in Las Vegas’ Red Rock Canyon.  But, the pictures do a better job showing rather than have me try to describe.

I am sure, based on what people tell us, the rock colors and craggy canyons keep getting better in Utah and Arizona’s Grand Canyon, but for now, we are loving the land located around the glitzy and fast-paced city of Las Vegas.

IMG_1243 The Red Rock Canyon National Conservancy has loads of hiking trails, but it was too cold and windy to make the trek enjoyable today.  So, we wait and research the hikes that seem best suited to us.  We will jump on a future warm, calm day that happens so often in these parts during winter. 

Today, we enjoyed the scenic loop drive—occasionally getting out of the truck to get close to the canyon overlooks, but mostly snapping pictures out the window to stay out of the harsh wind.

  1. If you get a chance (and the weather improves) Valley of Fire state park, just north on I-15 is also beautiful and has some great hikes. We loved both Red Rock and Valley of fire and were able to hike some in each.
