OUT AND ABOUT: RED ROCK CANYON STATE PARK

Red Rock Canyon
I been away from this site for awhile, partly from lack of discipline, and partly to discipline myself to get away from my computer. This thing sucks up way too much time. Do I want to look back on my life and recall that 70% of it was spent online? So that was my train of thought
In order to distract myself, I went here: Red Rock Canyon, a little ways outside Las Vegas. Most people come to Vegas to indulge in their vices, and I came here and got lost. This park is good for climbers, and people that stay on the road. It’s a relaxing scenic drive, and everyone you see teetering out in the fringes is most likely bushwhacking. That’s where I was, mucking about.
There are hardly any signs to show you where you are, and no one mentioned this little detail on Trip Advisor. But if you keep the main road in sight and don’t have a tendency to wander, the scenery will grip you. The rock is red in color, and thereby gives the park it’s name, I assume. Nature rarely gives you this much color to work with, this much texture.  When I got back, I assumed I had become a much better photographer.
