Red Rocks and Lake View Property

Yesterday I went hiking at Red Rock Canyon which is about 45 minutes West of Las Vegas. I then drove about 45 minutes East of Las Vegas to Lake Mead National Recreation Area, where I am camped at now. My America the Beautiful pass covered the entrance fee and I am camping for free in a designated area. They even have toilets and a dumpster,  although I will still use my own toilet. I met up with a friend headed through the area on the way to California. We had a nice campfire last night and enjoyed seeing all of the stars and the light from the Luxor hotel pyramid in Las Vegas going straight to the sky (I hear it can be seen from space) and a huge amount of lights from airplanes flying into and out of Las Vegas, probably because of the weekend. I remember the last time I was in Las Vegas that it explodes with people on the weekends, good reason for me to head to Lake Mead. We are camped near one of the fingers of Lake Mead. I love the view from my lake view property today 🏞IMG_7157IMG_7162IMG_7167IMG_7191IMG_7212IMG_7213
