Bouldering in Calico Hills
It only costs $5.00 US dollars (per car) to get
in the Red Rocks area of southern Nevada to do some
serious bouldering. When I was there, a few van-loads
of college students were taking advantage of the
opportunity, and seizing the moment. Please remember
that the gates close at 7 pm.
If you click on the picture, you can make out several
people climbing ON the "flesh-coloured" sandstone boulder in the lower left corner of the picture. (This boulder apparently took advantage of gravity and fell down into the wash from the sandstone hills above. As above, so below!) You can also see a patch of snow that was left from a March winter snowstorm in Southern Nevada.
