The Red Rock Canyon National Conservation area is one of the most beautiful things Las Vegas has to offer off the Strip. The beautiful red rocks, their different tones, forms and sizes create one of the most breathtaking landscapes you will ever see. Red Rock Canyon is visited by more than one million people each year. Definitely a “must see” for locals and tourists.
The cost to enter the park is $7, a small price to pay to enjoy the magnificent views and the area.
At the park there are numerous trails for hiking and picnic areas. Having a picnic at Red Rock on a Sunday afternoon was something I always wanted to do, and today I finally did it. And we got lucky because the weather was just perfect. A very mild temperature for late Fall, a nice breeze and cloudy skies. We even went for a short hike after our fabulous picnic lunch. We all brought different things to eat and ended up having a buffet-style picnic, so a little hiking was in place to burn out a few calories.
It was such a good time among friends, good food, beautiful scenery and picture taking.
Red Rock Canyon is food for your soul and spirit at only 17 miles away from the Las Vegas Strip.
Bring plenty of drinking water, walking sneakers, sunscreen, sunglasses, a hat and your camera. You’ll love it, l o v e it!
