A WORLD APART: RED ROCK CANYON & HENDERSON

I just got back from an extended weekend to visit familia in Las Vegas. Breaking away less than 18 miles from the noisy interiors of the Strip, you will find a whole other world- Red Rock Canyon. Hundreds of movies like the original Beneath the Planet of the Apes(1969) with Charleston Heston(Moses) were filmed there. We skated Henderson, too. It felt like Irvine in the desert.
