A Day in Pictures at Red Rock Canyon

Located within the Las Vegas city limits, Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area feels worlds away from the rest of town. In reality, it is only 17 miles west of The Strip, but it is hard to imagine it shares the same address. Who would have thought you could see scenic natural vistas, a desert oasis, rugged canyons, and countless opportunities for rock climbing without actually leaving the city?
