During our recent trip to Las Vegas a day trip to Red Rock Canyon was one of our “new” adventures to take. Less than 20 miles from the Vegas strip, this is what I consider a MUST see.
As someone who has lived near the hills of Appalachia and consistently visited and hiked the Smoky Mountains, I had never given much thought to the beauty of a desert. The colors and magnitude of the landscape truly touched me and I felt a very spiritual connection to nature. I truly believe you can not appreciate the true beauty of our surroundings without believing in a higher power.
Red Rocks soothed my soul just as standing on the beach and looking out at the ocean does. It was a different connection but something I will never forget.
Today I wanted to share some of the photographs. These were taken with my Iphone 6 using both the phone camera and the Camera+ App. I now have a DSLR and can only imagine the photographs I could take.
Take a few minutes to appreciate the beauty. Happy Friday!
