While in Las Vegas I was able to make one photo side trip to Red Rock Canyon. This image is a six shot panorama merged in Photoshop CS5. This resulted in a 592 MB TIF file which I converted to a compressed JPEG file for posting.
Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area is located about 15 miles (24 km) west of Las Vegas. The conservation area showcases a set of large red rock formations: a set of sandstone peaks and walls called the Keystone Thrust. The walls are up to 3,000 feet (910 m) high, making them a popular hiking and rock climbing destination. The highest point is La Madre Mountain, at 8,154 feet (2,485 m). The area is visited by over 1 million visitors each year. A one-way loop road, 13 miles (21 km) long, provides vehicle access to many of the features in the area.
