ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER " R "



Today the letter " R " is being featured on ABC Wednesday.
" R " is for Red Rock Canyon. Its hard to get the perspective
of how rugged and really huge this pile of rocks is. Notice in the lower lefthand corner of the picture the hiking trails.
This is a hikers paradise.



The rich layers of color in Red Rock Canyon, Nevada are fascinating to me.



Mountain climbers love the Red Rocks too. Can you find them scaling the side of the rock?
To see what others have posted for the letter " R ", go to Mrs. Nesbitts link on my side bar.

I never thought of this! I had a hard time with R; and I have photos of Red Rock. Double R. Your shots are great...I LOVE the red rocks...those mountain climbers look so tiny,

I love Red Rock Country! I will be in Sedona, AZ this next weekend for 5 days! Can't wait! I really like your RED ROCK!

Those are beautiful... My mom and I went to the Grand Canyon last year. I've seen it in pictures, of course, but seeing it in person blew my mind.

Mara said...

It took me a bit, but I managed to find the climbers. Lovely views and colours.

Anna said...

Snap! An excellent choice for the letter R :) Your rocks are most red indeed.

Janie said...

I love the redrock in southern Utah. Maybe we should go visit Red Rock Canyon in Nevada. Beautiful pictures of the massive formations.

Beverley Baird said...

We both love rocks. Gorgeous photos - looks like a great place to hike!

Judi said...

Beautiful. Great choice for R. Is this close to the Red Rocks Amphitheatre? I've always thought that would be a great place to see a concert.

Hildred and Charles said...

Interesting and quite beautiful - nature is so generous....

Autumn Belle @ KDP said...

The pictures are awesome. Creative use of letter R too.

Paula Scott said...

Isn't it just beautiful? Those rock formations and colors? We have much of that here in NM and many other colors too! It looks like someone went wild with the crayon box on the landscape!

I think strawberry blonde is very beautiful! I will never believe there is any gray in there. You are too young at heart : )

The colours are awesome against the blue sky. Beautiful shots.

I LOVED Red Rock Canyon! We stayed at Ruby's at Bryce, and took a trail ride in Red Rock. Since we're not very fit and can't hike far, it was a great way to see it!

Thanks for the memories. :)

Fascinating!
Never made it to Nevada, but close by, Arizona, Utah, Colorado and New Mexico, great rocks there too.

O/T:
I finally managed to put up my letter"P" - *giggles*

Rose said...

Beautiful! This reminds me of the area around Sedona, AZ with all of its red rock formations, too. Beautiful to look at, but I stay safely on the ground:)

Sandra said...

I have been a fan of western movies and books my whole life. I have never seen a red rock canyon and there is always one in each book. thanks for sharing. I knew rocks were beautiful and this proves it

I have an EP of U2 at Red rock; wonder how far it is from the pictures...

Irene said...

Fascinating rocks. Thanks for showing!

Shammickite said...

Fascinating view... but it looks so hot and unhospitable.

AphotoAday said...

It's been many years, but yep, I've been there -- probably a couple times when I was a kid... So much to explore around there...
Love that first shot...
