Red Rock

Nothing special going on right now – CES is in town, filling up the expensive hotel rooms. I thought rates on New Year’s Eve were outrageous, but evidently hotels charge even more than that on CES week. Wow.

But for now we can travel out west a few miles from the Strip and visit Red Rock. You can drive around the loop, walk the trails, or bike the long paths, but many people stop often and take photographs.


A new visitors center was recently constructed, with lots of interesting art and large patios so that you can just gaze at the vistas, while reading plaques to learn a bit of history and desert lore.






As you can see, we ended going out there on a really cloudy day.

Hi Joe. Happy Friday 13th! Did you know we have 3 coming in the first half of the year??

Sorry, I'm a blonde, but what is CES?

I think those clouds add a nice quality to your pictures that would be missing is the sky was an uninterrupted blue.

Cool! We haven't been in quite a while. I keep driving past; we've gotta stop & see the new center.
