Robert (Vegas Bob) Swetz spent 4 hours hiking in Red Rock Canyon yesterday and it was totally refreshing. It was so refreshing that Robert is going to go for another hike today Saturday 4-7-2012 and then spend "Easter Day" with the family.
Vacant Land in Red Rock Canyon has increased 4-5 times in value over the last 3 years, and by looking at the photographs on this post ... well you can see why.
Red Rock Canyon in approx 30 minutes from Las Vegas.
There were some flowers in bloom and I would think in another 2-3 weeks most of Red Rock Canyon will be in bloom. The reason Red Rock is behind on the flowers blooming is because of it's high elevation.
While I came across some people horseback riding, there are several horse corrals around the Red Rock Canyon area and riding horses is very popular in this area.
So on your next visit to Las Vegas Nevada check with the hotel where you are staying and find out if any shuttles of tour guides go out to Red Rock Canyon, it is worth the visit.
