Rocky Gap Trail, Red Rock Canyon, Las Vegas, NV 7-21-11

Went to Las Vegas for a 6 night stay. Found the only Jeep offroading company in the area and decided to take a tour. The guy that owned the company was probably one of the greatest guys I have ever met. Real friendly and took care of everything from airing me down to jumping out and spotting for me. The trail wasn't anything too hardcore and the TJ on 35's with lockers had no problems getting around. It was quite the scenic tour. I think the guy has another tour with harder wheeling but the wife wasn't going to go for that. We took what I think was called the Rocky Gap trail though Red Rock Canyon. Very scenic and a great time.

Heading toward the mountains
