On our last day in the desert we spent a little bit of time exploring Red Rock Canyon State Park. The cliffs there are colored in deep red and orange hues. The weather was very warm so we didn’t do a lot of actual hiking, but you can easily access some of the beautiful cliffs from the road and parking lots. There were a few people from a tour bus climbing on the rocks but it didn’t seem like a good (safe) idea to me. The way the rocks have eroded over the years reminded me of ancient architectural columns, each unique and beautiful in it’s own way. The heat started to peak around noon so we headed home.
