Red Rock Canyon

Tuesday morning, the sun was shining brightly so we packed up and headed for Red Rock Canyon which is only about 15 miles from Las Vegas. $5 per car full to get in. The new visitor center is very educational and offers great views of the surrounding mountains. The scenic drive inside the park is a 13 mile loop among snow covered peaks, red rocks and savanna. Lots of areas to pull over for photographs and a walk about. We are definitely planning on returning here again to try some of the many hiking trails. The loop would be a wonderful bicycle ride.
