Vegas's Outback

Almost within shouting distance of the Las Vegas Strip, Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area offers a welcome change of pace from Sin City's around-the-clock clang and clamor. Glorious formations of Aztec Sandstone give this natural rock garden, administered by the Bureau of Land Management, its name. Hikers, climbers, mountain bikers, and horseback riders can roam to their heart's content amid fiery buttes and twisty defiles.

Besides the geological grandeur, other treasures abound in Red Rock Canyon: from feral burros and desert bighorns to Dr. Seuss-style Joshua-trees and American Indian petroglyphs.
