RED ROCK CANYON, NEVADA – An easy trip from Las Vegas

Published by Darron Toy on


On our second day in Las Vegas we decided
to escape the city and enjoy a bit of the natural scenery. We joined the Pink Jeep Tour
for an afternoon exploring Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. Located about
a half hour drive outside of the city this is an easy day trip filled with rugged desert
landscapes. We spent a few hours driving through the park and also doing a bit of hiking along
the way. Here are some of the highlights. Alright, it’s time to climb this bad boy.
Okay, show us your climbing skills. Scramble up that mountain. Just like an old man. So this over here is the Calico Ridge and
the landscape reminds me a lot of Northern Argentina. The toilet. Is the toilet occupied? Hmm. Huh? Hello, there. So we are coming to the end of this outing.
We’re just doing our last little hike through the park and soon we’ll be back in Las Vegas.
But how did you enjoy it? It’s been awesome. It is so nice. I didn’t realize that there
was so many scenic areas just outside of Las Vegas. And the best part is that I am building
up an appetite for an enormous steak. Or sushi? No, steak.

I didn't know Red Rock Canyon was so close. Very scenic. I'm gonna have to look into it next time I'm in Vegas. Thanks for sharing.

I originally found your page when I was searching for videos of Seoul, South Korea. I ended up traveling there a few weeks ago. Tomorrow I'm on my way to Las Vegas and Red Rock Canyon is definitely on my list to see while there.

I've spent many days climbing and scrambling around Red Rocks and summited almost every point in the area long before it became much of an attraction for tourists. Awesome place.

….Gathering people who wants to be a part of building a network of stable, fully self sustaining and self sufficient communities (a.k.a. life-boats for the coming environmental collapse). Communities that live and thrive free of money. Peaceful communities that are built upon foundation of : love, spirituality, mercy, generosity, tolerance, intelligent, and wisdom. If you are interested in becoming a part of this grass root efforts, I encourage your reply.

This Community ARK Project is looking for peaceful, patience, humble, and kind-hearted people who are awaken and aware of the coming environmental collapse; who want to roll up their sleeves and participate in preparatory efforts. One cannot pull someone out of a raging river standing on a muddy slippery slope. In order to pull someone out of the river, one must stand on a firm solid foundation. A fully self-sufficient community is that solid foundation, upon which we stand in order to rescue other less fortunate who will be affected by the collapsing environment. If people are struggling to survive as the environment collapses, how can we help others? People need fully self-sufficient communities to shelter and nourish them, in order for them to reach out and help others.

We are gathering people from all spectrum of professional background: engineers, scientists, architects, biologists, farmers, doctors, nurses, artists, etc. Both skilled and unskilled people. Those with knowledge will teach those who lack them. Those not in the know will listen and learn so they might in turn teach others in the community. We have spent 6 years researching technology that were designed to allow Mars colonies to thrive in a desolate environment. We are now planning on using those very same technology to prepare people for the coming environmental collapse. If you are interested in helping out, we could use the help to reach the ears of people who are awaken through social media, or you can read our blog titled "Generalized Plan of Actions" for a list of tasks you can volunteer for.

(Note: this is a gathering process and NOT a recruitment process. When one recruit, one is trying to convince others to join a cause; well, someone else can always come along and convince people to join a different cause. But when one gather, one is speaking to those of like mind who do not need convincing; in their hearts and in their thoughts, they recognize the catastrophe that lay ahead if our modern societies continue on their current path of promoting competition, strife, ignorance and scarcity. This Community ARK Project is lighting a beacon so that those with similar mind set will know that they are not alone in their thoughts and impulses; and that there are others like them out there who desire to come together to pool our effort in order to extract ourselves and place ourselves on a different path, one that promote cooperation, harmony, foresight, and a nurturing environment.)

I had high hopes for this video, (being such fans of the two of you) but i must say i'm left utterly disappointed.

lizbeth hernandez · February 15, 2016 at 3:51 am

Do i need to pay for parking? Is the parking close to the views?

John H. · February 24, 2016 at 3:37 pm

Beautiful landscape

My friends and I drive the Red Rock Loop at night all the time when we don't have anything to do. However, last time we did it, around 12 AM, we saw a strange light in the sky and pulled over to watch it. We got out and watched this thing pull maneuvers that I know modern jets can't do, just over the mountain peaks, and then it shot up into the sky and disappeared at an un-human speed. The we got back in the car and started driving back to Vegas and we were followed by an all black "under-cover" vehicle with government plates that seemed to just appear behind us. We have some friends who have been up there too and have seen military humvees. I think somethings going on up there.

Seems everyone looking for a hike in Vegas goes west to Red Rocks. What about Pinto Valley Wilderness to the east? It's only 45-60 minutes. If you search "pinto valley wilderness" you'll find some cool hikes out there too. Red rocks, beautiful scenery, and NO CROWDS! Unless you go to Valley of Fire 🙂

Hipster Claw’s Studio · February 25, 2019 at 12:34 pm

Cool 😎i’ve been to Oklahoma and LA only
