    Hidden Oasis

    By Patrick Moulin

    Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, just a short drive west of Las Vegas, is popular with hikers, mountain climbers and bikers. What many outdoor enthusiasts may not know about are the seasonal waterfalls. These hidden spectacles are a sight not often seen in the desert, and with the heavy winter snows melting, this an excellent time of year to visit.

    The Flora, Fauna and Vandalism of Red Rock

    Traversing the trails of Red Rock Canyon, hikers encounter Joshua trees, desert tortoises, yucca plants and even the occasional bighorn sheep. The Native American tribes who made the canyon their home left petroglyphs etched into the gray limestone and Aztec sandstone. These days, many visitors are adding their own markings to the canyon’s rocks, making graffiti almost as common a sight as flora, fauna and wildlife.
