These images are from a springtime jaunt to the summit of Blue Diamond Hill in on the eastern edge of Red Rock National Conservation Area. We didn't know what to expect from the hike and were pleasantly surprised by the charming desert flora and the fantastic views towards the sandstone peaks of Red Rock.
