Red Rock Canyon, Nevada 

An amazing find. I wish I had time to hike all of these trails!


Calico Hills:


Icebox Canyon: 
Tips: Go early in the morning in summer. The park gates open at 6 am. The entrance fee per vehicle is $7. Take water. A camel pack is good. Take additional water in your vehicle, such as a 5 gallon Collman storage can. Wear a hat. Remember to drink your water. The desert heat can sneak up on you and heat exhaustion can come on quickly. Protect yourself from the sun. I prefer clothing that covers my legs and a T shirt. Eat a low fat meal before going. Watch for desert wildlife and be aware that snakes often hide under rocks. Wear good hiking shoes and watch out for cacti. With these precautions, I find this area euphoric!
