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.
