Photo diary : Red Rock Canyon visit from Vegas

A little further, about 20 miles from the lights of the Las Vegas Strip lies Red Rock Canyon. The 13-mile scenic loop drive goes through the Calico Hills, petroglyphs and the vibrant sand dunes that preserve fossils from millions of years ago. These fossilized sand dunes seem to change hue from red and pink to orange and tan as the sun travels across the sky.

We were at Vegas for a college reunion and did the Pink Jeep tour to go see the spectacular Red Rock Canyon.
