Red Rocks Canyon, just outside Las Vegas

Figured I'd post some photos I took last week from Red Rocks Canyon, a gorgeous scenic area just west of Las Vegas, not more than 15 miles from Downtown!

^Last week? How hot was it? I was there in February. It was nice then. Cool actually.

It's a really nice place. Thanks for the photos.

It was relatively cool. Maybe mid 80s...

You're welcome!

You're welcome, brickell. One reminder, if you end up there next week, they don't take credit cards, so have your $5 cash for the entrance fee!

Don't laugh, I got caught in that situation last week, and needed to drive back into town a few miles to get to an ATM! Hahaha

Nice retreat from the action in Vegas! Mt. Charleston area is very neat too.

That don't look like Illinois.
Hopefully these beautiful scenes won't be loaded with condos and strip malls in the near future.
