Red Rock Canyon

I spent most of Thanksgiving Afternoon hiking at Red Rock Canyon National Conservation area just west of Las Vegas, in Clark County, Nevada.  I was actually surprised at how many people were at the park.

I took a hike along the Calico Hills Trail, which can be accessed without going through the main gate, which means I didn’t have to pay to get in.

I guess it shouldn’t be much of a surprise that there were a lot of people came here today.  I am somewhat surprised this isn’t a National Park.

I only got to hike a small portion of the park.  I’m sure I will be back to see more.

This was the last picture I was able to take.  The batteries in my camera died and apparently the “backup” set I had in my backpack were actually another dead set.  I’m not sure whether the rock has been vandalized for its petroglyphs or whether the rock has just naturally broken apart.  After my hike I went to a casino buffet for my Thanksgiving dinner.  What a disappointment.  The turkey was cold, no corn, no pumpkin pie……..I think I’m going home next Thanksgiving.
