The Actual Canyon

One thing that confounds me about photography is the way that the camera just can’t get that same depth-of-field that the human eye does, and does this so quickly too. I visited the U.S. Fee area portion of Red Rock Canyon today. You can not access Red Rock Canyon proper without paying for it.

The fees vary so be prepared. As a local, I find the best time of year to visit this twelve mile long, One Way Only road is in summer when the folks who don’t dig our scorching 100+ temperatures stay away. Even the rock climbers and hikers wisely stay away! Anyway, I have some dandy photos lined up from today.

I really hope this set will give you an idea of the actual depth of the canyon, as well as the incredible size of it’s canyon walls. Click a photo to enlarge to see tiny humans far below! More to come.

  1. I don’t get the women who wear dresses to hike a canyon. That can’t be comfortable.
