One of our first excursions was to visit Red Rock Canyon Park. It reminded me of Arizona, which is of course fairly close.
First view of the rocks. A certain number of people were visiting the park, where many hikes are possible. There was a lone climber up on the rock face.
That climber, as a little white dot on the rock face

I really loved the dry climate of Las Vegas. It reminded me of the Mediterranean. Though Las Vegas has the big advantage of having few insects and no mosquitoes! Such a relief after the swarms of mosquitoes and other biting insects of most of the rest of the country. They do have bees, though.
I will post some more later. We had interesting visits to the Botanic Garden and to Lake Las Vegas.
