Red Rock Escarpment
Just outside of Las Vegas you can find some serious peace and quiet almost anywhere. The rat race that is a big city gives way to calmness and serenity of the Mojave Desert. ❤️
Millions of years in the making, this fault line will outlive all of us…
A lone cyclist rides west and south on Charleston Boulevard many miles outside of the city. It’s too damn hot for this even if you are in great physical condition! Good luck buddy…
Along the Red Rock Escarpment you will find so much beauty the Mojave Desert has to offer. Get out of your car, enjoy the desert! Just watch for scorpions and snakes!
Those peaks way up there are a portion of the Lamadre Range on the west side of the valley. The stone is different up there, hence it looks very different to those much further below.
Dead ahead is the Red Rock Escarpment, or your basic Fault Line. Those cliffs are many miles away actually, the photo does no justice to the size and beauty of the scene. Nevada love!
