Hiking with Impunity took a brief sojourn to Red Rock Canyon Conservation Area in Nevada over the New Years weekend. Red Rock Canyon is located near Las Vegas in the Mojave Desert, and is almost 196,000 acres. Knowing that we only had a short amount of time to fit in a hike and that we needed a route that would be relatively easy to accomodate our lack of appropriate gear, we visited the Red Rock Canyon Conservation Area website...

Hiking with Impunity flew cross country to celebrate one of their best friend's birthday, and was able to include a short loop in Red Rock Canyon on the trip. Ill-equipped and unprepared, we decided against a long hike. But the 1.1 mile loop we took (in addition to the fabulous scenic drive) was more than enough to give these hikers a taste of what can be seen and done in Red Rock while also whetting our appetite for more hiking in 2012! As usual, a full report on this hike (along with some great photos!) will be online soon.
As this is our last post for 2011, we want to thank our family, friends, and readers for their support! We wouldn't be here without you! We wish you all the happiest of New Years, and look forward to bringing you more articles and photos in the coming year!
Til then.... Happy Hiking!
