I woke up super early around 7:45am. That's impressive for a Saturday in Las Vegas. I was a little hungover, yet managed to crawl out of bed and drive from Henderson up to Red Rock Canyon. It's located a few minutes west of new Red Rock Casino in Summerlin, and is less than a half hour drive from the Strip (without traffic). As you can see from just a few of the pics that I took, Red Rock Canyon is an amazing park.
My buddy Friedman and I went hiking up on one trail that took us to the foot of the actual red rocks. We did some light climbing, nothing spectacular, but I defintely broke a sweat. We saw some a few lizards and a frog. By 10:15am we were climbing over and sliding down smooth boulders.
Now that I'm home, I'm exhausted which blows because I have to go to the Bellagio for a few hours for work. At least I was able to experience a part of the spectaular mountains that encircle Las Vegas.
