I've said before that living in the desert is strange from where I grew up in California because there aren't as many tree's, grass or foliage as there was in California when I was little. But we do have an interesting landscape for sure. These 3 pictures were taken out at Red Rock Las Vegas. And as you can see some of those rocks and mountains out there are red.
It's a desert landscape so if you visit there you aren't going to see a lot of big tree's like you'd see in the mountains but there are some small bushes and cactus.
Because it gets so hot here in the summer 117F I never liked going hiking in the summer but it's nice to pick a trail in the fall or Winter months and take a hike.
