Red Rock Canyon Nat’l Conserv. Area

TNDY8379[1]Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area is only about 30 minutes outside of Las Vegas and is a great side trip if you’re looking for a break from the bright lights, gambling, and smoke of Vegas and a little bit of nature and the outdoors.

We visited during and after some pretty crazy rains which resulted in Flash Flooding and quite a few closures in the park, which made the trails a bit hard to find and everything a little messy.

Thus we didn’t get a successful hike in, but we did breeze through the 13 mile scenic loop by car on Monday before hitting the road to return back home.
JEGD0812[1]Although we spent most of our time in Valley of Fire State Park we did camp at Red Rock Campground which had a great setup with most of the sites having structures to protect from the hot sun, or in our case rain!

The view wasn’t bad either 🙂

In a few weeks I will be headed back to Las Vegas for the International Pizza Expo, and looking forward to a few sunrise or sunset hikes during the week to explore this conservation area a bit more!
