Day 12 (part 1) – Red Rock Canyon

Other than outlet shoppings and The Strip, today is another day not knowing what to do in Las Vegas. Our hotel’s (MGM Grand) front desk recommended Red Rock Canyon. It is about 30mins to 40mins away from LV.

Again, this is an isolated desert.

Nothing much interesting here. Everywhere is dry. There is a trekker’s path. Wondering what is behind the mountain.

What facinates me the most is desert cactus.

There are life-sized…

.. medium sized ….

or tiny ones.

Watch out for it’s torn.


What amazed you the most in a desert? Water! Water is next most precious thing see in desert. And when we chance upon a cave with a little stream of river, we exclaimed, “Water! Water!” As if we never see water before. 😆

Some ppl just can’t resist to take a sip. They believe the water contain some minerals that is not found in our normal drinking water. I’m not taking chance. I’d rather not have the abnormal minerals than to be toxicated!

Even the rocks is not spare from looking normal.

Shall we named it – The Holey Rock?

Everything there is highly aggrevated. For example their public washroom.

They looks nice and sleek on the outside.

On the inside…. *pinch nose*

*run and puke!*

p/s: My first attempt in photostitching.

I salute Sila for making them look easy. But aitelyu, I almost pull all my hair out! Neway, they looks pretty good for first timer 😉 . Need to brush up my skills tho.

Since there are nothing much to do there, we continue our journey to some cowboy town. Tune in for Part 2. Adios!

    Ewww…how could you even stay long enough to focus and take that photo in the loo?

    Fantastic desert pictures nevertheless… I’m drawn by the endless BLUE SKIES….

    The Queen says:  I held my breath and take a quick snap!  To tell you the truth, it doesn’t stink at all.  I think this is part of their conservative program therefore, recycle them into fertiliser.  I could be wrong tho.

    Some people take pictures of anything. hahaha *piak*

    I was born in desert mountians so I enjoy walking in the dry land sometimes. Loved seeing mountains in the distance when I was young. Sometimes I hate living on flat land like I do now in this swamp.
