Red Rock Nevada – It’s Not Called a Scenic Drive for Nothing
Before leaving Nevada we decided to take a scenic drive and explore the mountain region surrounding Las Vegas. With no plan, we just drove. We didn’t really know where we were going but lucky for us we stumbled upon a complete amazing destination that is drastically the opposite of the Las Vegas Strip, Red Rock Canyon Conservation. The serene outdoors, no buildings, just nature. We weren’t prepared to walk very far or hike Red Rock Canyon so we simply enjoyed the 13-mile scenic drive.
This mini 13-mile adventure took us on winding roads, vast views of Las Vegas and spectacular panoramic vistas. But of course we took time to pull over at a few of the designated parking locations to get a close up look of the amazing rock formations and vivid colors. As you can see I’m wearing a red dress, a coincidence, red dress in red rock. It just worked out perfectly. This was an impeccable conclusion to our week in Las Vegas!
What do you think of this gorgeous place? Have you ever been or heard of Red Rock Canyon?
