It wasn't planned to go, but it was great to see pictures of people in the circle of friends, so we came too. The scenic spot is not far from Las Vegas. It's about half an hour's drive. Because it's a national park, the annual ticket we bought for the National Park of the United States can also be used, but even the ticket is inexpensive, about $10 a car. The main line is a 14-mile ring called Scenic Driving and a tourist center. Driving along this scenic line, you can see many hills of different shapes and shapes of red stones. There are some footpaths for tourists to walk around in the mountains. Interested people can go for a walk. Because we passed in winter, we also saw snow. It really snowed at the top of the hillside. Clouds and mists, white snowflakes and faint sunshine make up a rare natural spectacle. I highly recommend you to have a look.
Red Rock Canyon National Park, only 20 minutes from LAS, 7 cars (hiking resort). Red stone is rich in iron oxide, and green stone contains iron that is not oxidized. The rich oxidative deposits result in the unique igneous red rock formations of the canyon. Walking in the canyon, all the rocks are strange, scratches and deep marks appear in impossible places, permeating with a strange atmosphere.
A national park near downtown Las Vegas can be reached in 30 minutes by car with a total length of about 20 kilometers per car. It is famous for its red rocks. But the various mountain sceneries in the garden are also beautiful. It's also suitable for hiking and cycling. When you buy tickets, you'll get a guide with recommended hiking and cycling routes. You can also climb the wild mountains along the red stones. There are many climbers with professional equipment. All in all, this is a place of great value for money.
The first stop is the Visitor Center. Take a map and look at the approximate route. The route is very simple, a one-way road, around a circle. This Visitor Center is the most beautiful one I have ever seen. Outside it is a small exhibition center. It introduces the geological features of the park and the causes of the special landforms. The rocks here are red because of the fact that the rocks are red. A hundred years of wind and rain erosion of rock sand by iron oxide infiltration, will form a fire-like red. Looking out from the Visitor Center, it's the Calico attraction. From a distance, it's the red hills and bushes all over the mountains. Despite the desert, after years of harnessing, the desert is no longer barren land, but a wilderness full of shrubs, grasses and Joshua trees. Unlike the imagined desert, the desert here has a little vitality. My favorite is the Joshua tree, which is a unique plant in the Mojave Desert. It's hard to see anywhere else. From a distance, it's a bit like paper-cut, with simple and clear lines.
Red Rock Canyon, my passion is like a fire, burning the desert! Honey, do you feel the temperature here? A park with high cost performance
Tired of flashy and noisy streets? It's better to walk out of the city to Hongyan Canyon National Reserve. In less than an hour's drive, you can watch the stars, breathe the fresh air in the desert and settle down safely. Red Rock Canyon is also the most beautiful scenic spot in Nevada, the famous Las Vegas Avenue (The Strip) can clearly see the towering Red Rock Canyon. Las Vegas is not a resort for nature enthusiasts and older people. Only the mountains that rise here and the sky that spreads out on the top of the mountains can you experience the real natural wonders. These sands, which have been eroded by wind and rain for hundreds of years, have different shapes, and the red color of fire formed by iron oxide infiltration makes them even more spectacular in the sunset. Therefore, the Red Rock Canyon has become an excellent place for photographers and a preferred place for rock climbers. In addition, the tourist service centers and souvenir shops provide visitors with all kinds of relevant information about the park. You can also learn more about the formation of various geological processes. Besides enjoying the beautiful scenery, you can also increase some geographical knowledge.
Just in time for the rain, but this is the feeling of fairyland! The mist is winding, the fairy cloud is rising!
Red Rock Canyon National Reserve, once entering this area, all eyes are red, shining at different levels under different light. It's very hot here. Everyone should pay attention to sunscreen instead of water and food. And the most beloved one can see this strange landform is the biggest purpose of our trip. We say well, we will see the world all our life.
Red Rock Canyon National Reserve is not far from the urban area. There are some mountain roads, pay attention to driving, and you can spend time here during the day. It's a unique desolate scene in the western United States. It's totally different from the bustling and gorgeous Las Vegas City.
Red Rock Canyon National Reserve is too magnificent, the whole piece of red, especially when the sun is about to set, is even more beautiful. I suggest driving into the park, belongs to my favorite desolate to extreme natural scenery category, five-star recommendation.
