A Visit To The Red Rock Canyon

Instead of doing the usual visits to the casinos ( that we will do anyways), I decided to start researching what natural sights we can visit around the the Las Vegas area. Red Rock Canyon is only 8 miles from my front door and a  pretty neat place, so we went there this afternoon.  It looks like the Grand Canyon but on a much smaller scale.  The actual walls of the canyon are red which looks almost unrealistic, it’s stunning scenery and soo close to my home!  We took the scenic 1 hour drive around the canyon and area, and I snapped photos along the way. Today the temperature was up to a nice mild 17°C, so it was perfect, even though up there we did see some traces of snow on the ground.

Tonight it’s back to regular tourist stuff, going down to the strip to see some stuff..
