My nephew James and his wife Heather went on vacation in June. This is the 2nd post from their vacation photos. Thank you James!
Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area lies in Nevada’s Mojave Desert. It’s known for geological features such as towering red sandstone peaks and the Keystone Thrust Fault, as well as Native American petroglyphs. Panoramic viewing spots dot the 13-mile Scenic Drive.
Today let’s explore Red Rock Canyon with James and Heather. There were beautiful skies that day.
There is something about the clouds in the desert that are so beautiful.
Thanks for the visit!

…those huge skies would make you feel like a small part of humanity.
Beautiful! Thanks for sharing with us.
All the years visiting family in Vegas, I have never been to the Canyon!
My wife and I were just talking that we miss the desert landscape of the west. Our vacations the last several years have all been to the beach. These photos make me want to go west again.
The pictures are superb !!
I agree – James takes beautiful photos
Awesome Nevada sky shots ~ Xo

So beautiful. So many years (over 40) since I saw red rocks like that in person. Too many years.
Wow, gorgeous! Similar to the desert where I like to hike, and yet different. Beautiful photos.
Such pretty photos!
Thank you to James and his wife Heather and to you Carol. Knowing that I would probably never see these places in my life but thanks to you guys I can. Have a great day
that’s one of the things I love about visiting blogs – I get to see the world from my comfy chair!
What a majestic environment!
it really looks great – I haven’t made it to the canyon
Your nephew and his wife take wonderful pictures and I love armchair travel :(almost as much as the real thing). It’s great to see the natural parts of Nevada as opposed to the bling of the casinos.
I’m a huge fan of armchair travel – another reason I enjoy your posts!
Beautiful blue skies with those gorgeous clouds.
Carol – spectacular photos! And yes, I find clouds make skies much more interesting. Thanks for bringing desert beauty to life for everyone at Mosaic Monday!
BEAUTIFUL! Love the rugged vistas.
Happy Monday, Carol!
Absolutely gorgeous! Magnificent series.
