Photographer's Note

A telephoto sunset view from above the Las Vegas 'Strip' looking west towards Red Rock Canyon.

"Red Rock Canyon was designated as Nevada State's first National Conservation Area, located 17 miles west of the Las Strip on Charleston Boulevard (Highway 159). The area is 195,819 acres and is visited by more than one million people each year. In marked contrast to a town geared to entertainment and gambling, Red Rock offers enticements of a different nature including a 13 mile scenic drive, more than 30 miles of hiking trails, rock climbing, horseback riding, mountain and road biking, picnic areas, nature observing, and a visitor center with exhibit rooms and displays. The unique geologic features, plants and animals of Red Rock represent some of the best examples of the Mojave Desert."
