October 27: Red Rock Canyon National Preserve

We spent the afternoon at Red Rock Canyon near Las Vegas. There we found more amazing sandstone rock formations an bright colored rocks.

We had an adventure at the end of our stay. We took off in Dave's Honda CRV up a canyon on a 4x4 road. We drove up over rocks and a small stream. We continued quite a ways before we came to our nemesis, a jumbled rock dry stream bed. Dave realized we weren't going to make it through so he began to back out. The car got wedged slightly sideways and one tire spun uselessly in the air. It took ingenuity and brute strength to unstick the car, turn around and come back down the canyon. Luckily it felt more like an adventure than a problem.
