{Nevada Desert} Red Rock Canyon

Wow, how time has flown by and I'm just now getting my first post up for 2015. So far, this year has been incredible and full of fun and exploration. To kick start this new year off right, Heinz and I traveled down to the Nevada desert to do some hiking and exploring in Red Rock Canyon and the Valley of Fire State Park. Both very beautiful and scenic spots and I would have to say the January was a perfect time to go. Mild weather and fewer crowds made for a really enjoyable time.

Red Rock Canyon has a little bit of everything for everybody. If you're up for a little adventure, there are several short hikes that take you out of the main stream of people and into some real beautiful terrain. H & I were on a time crunch when we hit up Red Rock Canyon, but we were still able to hike up to the Calico Tanks as well as scratch the surface of the rest of the park. There is really so much more to see, this is just of small taste of what we saw. 

One of my favorite pic's - those clouds were amazing!

Red Rock Canyon is a great way to spend a little time during the winter months. I highly recommend it. Next up, Valley of Fire.

Happy Trekkin'!
