By Andrew Belonsky
A moderate 6.3 mile hike in Red Rock Canyon, the Las Vegas Overlook loop can't be beat when it comes to looking down on Sin City, but turn around and you'll see real splendor in the canyon's cardinals and pinks.

Eagle eyed hikers should keep an eye out for sea shell imprints left over from when the entire state was submerged under water.
