Southern Nevada's Red Rock Canyons

The purpose of this album is to show the unique beauty and diversity of the sandstone Canyons of Red Rocks, Nevada. Do not be confused by the official name Red Rock Canyon Conservation Area. There is a lot more canyons than what the name suggests ;) Most of the canyons have seasonal flowing water and natural pools and therefore are teaming with animal and plant life even large Ponderosa Pine trees. It is a completely different world in there compared to the rest of the arid Mojave Desert.
Most of my journeys through them involve bagging a peak, but the canyons are nice destinations in themselves if you like rock scrambling, lots of boulder hopping, animals, peace, quiet and beauty.
Enjoy…

I especially liked the two pictures of Fern Canyon, one taken in spring and one taken in autumn. We're going to Red Rocks over Thanksgivng (my sister recently bought a house in Vegas). I'm excited to be going, but realized it will have a different feel to me -I've been Red Rocks 3x, but always in the spring.

Thank you Lisa. I really like those two pictures as well even though they are definitely not popular on SP ;). They remind me that autumn will be lovely in Red Rocks when I feel sorry that the springtime is over. Enjoy your trip!

I love the way you arranged the photos on top of the page.
I need to try that with mine. You must have a really fast
computer, and I already know you choose to stay up late.
(But, what do you do in the summer? Eat lots of ice cream?)

Thank you Larry. I have many more photos to post. I thought the small thumbnails would add a nice touch to the page. They are pretty quick to arrange by using the "insert image" button.

No ice cream for me, but I do love homemade smoothies by my own recipes. Here's one: a cup of 100% orange juice, a cup of 100% pineapple juice, a cup of unsweetened coconut juice (optional), a cup of organic vanilla soy yogurt, frozen blueberries, strawberries (frozen or fresh), frozen banana, frozen peaches. Mix it all in a blender and enjoy. Tastes better than ice-cream ;) Sometimes I use frozen raspberries instead of blueberries just for a change of flavor.
It may not be mountain related comment response, but it sure tastes great after an all day in the warm weather. Cheers.

It's definitely mountain-related! A person needs to take care
of their body to climb mountains, including adjusting their
eating habits at home. It sounds so delicious! Thanks, Anya.:)

Are you sure you don't own stock in a large health food store?
Trader Joe's, maybe?? ~kidding~ :))
