Lake Mead

A quick weekend trip to Lake Mead, a national recreation area. We picked up a National Park Annual Pass, so you better believe that I'm going to be visiting more places! I think next up will be Zion Canyon, Utah. Lake Mead is known for some great fishing and hopefully I'll get a chance catch some fish next time around.

Also as we were leaving, we got to catch full moon rise!  It was beautiful and the pictures do not do it justice. Amazing.

Red Rock Canyon

Las Vegas is known for its (I finally learned the difference between its and it's) neon lights and casinos. At least this was the case for me. I came here thinking that all it was is a city full of casinos and never-ending nightlife. While this is true to some extent, Las Vegas has so much more to offer as I've been finding out. In its (again with the proper use!) backyard is a natural playground that is not easily matched. Red Rock Canyon is probably about 20 minutes away and I can already tell that its going to be one of my favorite places to visit. Great hiking, what looks like amazing climbing and a breathtaking view. I already can't wait to go back!
