The Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area in Nevada is located about 15 miles (24 km) west of Las Vegas, and is easily seen from the Las Vegas Strip. The area is visited by more than two million people each year. It is one of the best rock climbing areas close to a major city.
The conservation area showcases a set of large red rock formations: a set of sandstone peaks and walls called the Keystone Thrust. The walls are up to 3,000 feet (910 m) high, making them a popular hiking and rock climbing destination. The highest point is La Madre Mountain, at 8,154 feet (2,485 m).
This picture was taken from a park of Cinta Costera. You also can see the flag of another park in the area.
