Perspectives of Red Rock Canyon
I went to Red Rock Canyon National Park today for some fresh air and some photography. The canyon is part of the Mojave Desert, located just outside of Las Vegas.
Last July, a fire hit the desert and burned many acres of Torrey Yucca and other cacti across a large part of the canyon. These photos include many images of the plants in the wake of the fire.
In contrast, I took several shots of live Torrey Yucca, so that you can compare how they look. I also have several pictures of the amazingly beautiful Calico Hills, the queens of Red Rock Canyon.
Wild Burros live in Red Rock, but they are so accustomed to people that you can approach them and touch them, they don’t seem to mind.
Here are some of my favorite images. Click link at bottom of this blog for the full Flickr set.
