Vegas Business Trip

 

I recently made the most of a four day business trip to Las Vegas with evening trips to Red Rock Canyon and Hoover Dam (Hoover Dam will be posted very soon). The Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area is an awe inspiring park about twenty miles outside Las Vegas and for a small admission price you can enjoy a beautiful loop drive offering plenty of places to stop, get out and hike, bike, climb, picnic all the while taking in the desert views and wildlife.

Getting these shots proved to be a bit of a challenge due to the thirty to forty mile an hour winds and my use of a unfamiliar tripod but, with the sun approaching the horizon on a cloudless sky you have to adapt quickly and I did. It also helped that I wasn’t driving (Thank you to my co-worker Theresa).
