This guy was the highlight of my trip to the Red Rock Canyon in March. A white-tailed antelope ground squirrel, I think.
Beautiful rock formation and desert scenes in Arizona and Utah have always been on my list of top travel spots. I secretly really want to go with my dad with our cameras. Last year Aaron showed interests in going there. As a planner plus a dreamer, I planned out a nine-day trip from Zion National Park, the north rim of the Grand Canyon, Lake Powell, to Monument Valley, and then circling back to Vegas through the south rim of Grand Canyon. From budget to food to things to do and see. It seems that this dream trip will not come true any time soon, so Red Rock Canyon became a tiny sample of my grand mission.
Day 1: Arriving LAS at 10:45 a.m. → The Strip
Day 2: In-N-Out Burger → Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area → Sushi House Goyemon → Night view on the Strip
Day 3: Lake Mead → Flying back to Pittsburgh
So, Vegas! This is absolutely not a top vacation spot I would pick. I could not care less about gambling and clubbing on the Strip. Aaron was going to Vegas for work, so I tagged along. Turned out that we had a fantastic weekend visiting the Vegas off the Strip and people watching on the Strip.
