Las Vegas

Outside of the city limits of Las Vegas are many interesting geological areas.  Red Rock National Monument and The Valley of Fire are both remnants from the red sand dunes that covered the southwest in the geological past.  The red sandstone erodes in a elaborate ways that echo their wind swept origins.
Red seems to be the color.  We spotted this wild red horse about 20 miles north of Boulder City.
