This easterner recently vacationed for a week in Las Vegas and spent four mornings out at Red Rock Canyon. I would arrive before the gate opened and once in, hike a couple hours before the temps really went up. The hardest was the Calico Tanks Trail up beyond the tanks to the sloping ledge offering an incredible view of Las Vegas and the Valley. I wanted to try the trail up to Turtlehead Peak but I was hiking alone and did not have my trekking poles or all the ten essentials I would have wanted, so that hike will have to wait for another visit.
