Hiking in Red Rock Canyon







Hiking in Red Rock is always fun (at least before the summer heat arrives).      A lot of people do rock climbing, but the only part that looks like fun is rappelling down.      Too much work getting up there.    I like what they do on Amazing Race – you take an elevator to the top of a building and rappel down.    That I would do!
















Despite being in a desert, you can find water (and trees) if you know which trail to take.     





You can even find a 15 foot waterfall.     Okay, I have to confess, RJ took this picture.     The climb out onto that rock to get the shot looked a little dangerous with my balance issues.  




If you get to Las Vegas, this is a beautiful park to drive through and enjoy and it’s just a couple miles outside the city.     No hiking (or rock climbing) is necessary to see the beauty of this park.
