This week I take you back to the great state of Nevada to the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. It is part of the National Park System and is about 15 miles west of Las Vegas.
This area is more popular than Valley of Fire and is very touristy. Get there early and enjoy it before the crowds arrive. You can hike it and spend a day there or if you are pressed for time, you can drive the scenic loop road and spend a few hours here.
The sandstone walls are up to 3,000 ft The highest point in the park is La Madre Mountain, which is 8,154 ft
As far as I was concerned, the area near the visitor center was the most photogenic offering Joshua Trees and cacti as foreground anchors to the landscape.
Again, there are so many treasures all over the United States. Why kill yourself over the Euro. Why deal with anti Americans. Stay home and discover America. And ironically, you’ll see so many folks from the rest of the world doing the same. If it’s good enough for them, then by God, it should be good enough for you.
See you out in the field infidels.
