I have to say one of our favorite things about Las Vegas is being so close to the mountains. Red Rock is only 15 minutes from us and it has provided some great entertainment and exercise.
There are so many different trails to hike, we have only scratched the surface, but we have found one that we love. It is pretty vigorous, including some serious bouldering up rocks to get to the peak where you can see out over the
whole valley, including the Strip. It is surreal to be in such a serene environment, yet so close to society. We have taken many friends and
family, at least to drive the 13 mile loop. Here are just a few great pics. Isn't it gorgeous. Come visit and bring your hiking shoes.
