No, we didn’t go to Las Vegas to gamble. Las Vegas is actually a great “base camp” for exploring red rocks and petroglyphs. There are a number of parks surrounding the city that provide excellent outdoor adventures.
In a week, my friend Libby and I went to and hiked in Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, Valley of Fire State Park, Gold Butte National Monument, Sloan Canyon National Conservation Area, and Lake Mead National Recreation. I will post the pictures in the next few days.
