In the desert there are mountains with beautiful red sandstone within them that add color to our usually bland tans of sand. Above is a picture of Red Rock Canyon which is just west of Las Vegas. It is a park and you can drive through it for a small fee.
There are light tan rocks with these magnificent red striations going through them that are most unique for the area. Rocks around the Grand Canyon also display similar colorations within the surroundings. I also have seen similar rocks in Utah as well while traveling through at Bryce Canyon, Zion and other locations.
There is much beauty to be seen in our United States and when you have time to drive from one location to another keep your eyes open because you will be surprised by what you see. From colorful rocks to flat expanse of meadows or wild flowers, forests of trees to sand covered grounds. It is all quite unique and worth looking at and creating a memory in my opinion.
Have a blessed day!
