Late last night, we got home from a trip to Las Vegas. This was my 4th time in Vegas and it is always fun. I wish I could say that I won the big jackpot and came home rich, but I just came home tired. This time on our trip, we took a drive out to Red Rock Canyon. It is a very nice drive through the park with lots of hiking trails. There is even rock climbing areas for those who are a lot more adventurous than me.
These rocks have very cool patterns in their formations. I didn't have my camera with me on the trip, so these were taken using my Iphone, so they are not the best. If you click the photo to make it bigger, you can see some of the patterns in the rocks.
The land goes from flat and dry to suddenly having the large rock formations seem to come out of no where. There are supposed to be wild burros living out here in the parkland, but we didn't see any.
It was about 100 degrees when we left Vegas to drive to the Red Rock Canyon. When we got to the park (about 1/2 hour drive) it was raining on one side of the park and only about 77 degrees. The change in temperature was amazing, even from one side of the park to the other, there was about a 10 degree temperature change.
The dogs spent the weekend at home with Amy. I tried not to call too often to check up. No need to worry, the dogs were well and happy when we got home. When we left on Thursday, their cookie jar was full because I just bought them some new treats. When I got home last night the cookie jar was completely empty except for a few crumbs, so I guess they got spoiled when I was gone.
