Las Vegas - Part IV - Red Rock Canyon and the Ride Home.
Our last morning we spent driving the scenic route at Red Rock Canyon and hiking. It was such a beautiful day, sunny, mid/upper 70's and brilliant blue sky, most of the morning.
We went off the beaten track in search of burros, wild tortoises, and wild horses. But we only saw 2 wild burros, they were beautiful! No tortoises. One wild horse track and we thought we heard one. A jack rabbit and lots and lots of mule deer.
Out in the middle of the dessert is this great pine tree, but actually just a scheme to hide the cell phone towers. Pretty comical.
A few pictures from the sky on our ride home.
This must be the Grand Canyon judging by the red Colorado River.
