Red Rock Canyon, Las Vegas

I thought I would share a few of the pictures we've taken on our trips to Red Rock Canyon here in Nevada. It's just a short drive from Las Vegas but once you get there it's totally different from all the lights and glitter here in Vegas. We've gone there quite a few times over the past 20 years. This is Ken and our daughter when she was younger. 

Since they have their jackets on you can tell it's in the winter, but it still was nice hiking weather. I actually prefer it in the winter months before the snow gets on everything. I don't have to deal with the bugs in the winter. lol 

My daughter and I. You just don't get mountainous views like that here in the Las Vegas Valley. It's great for hiking in Red Rock.  

On the way to Red Rock, we would stop and feed/pet the donkeys that are always waiting for food. People pull their cars over all the time and feed the donkeys and they just stand there and let you feed and pet them.

When one of our hamsters passed away, we took him to Red rock and buried him under a really pretty tree.

  2. They really do have it made and they know when a car stops that they are most likely going to get food. lol
