I went to Red Rock Canyon National Park last week.

The Visitors Center has the usual video presentation that you see at National Park Visitors Centers.

The one at Red Rock was stunning.

Clearly, this was shot recently. It has drone footage and most importantly - it appears to be shot in glorious 4K.

The TV that showed the video was a GIANT 4K Sony TV.

The 20-odd minute video was gorgeous to look at. It really shows off what 4K can do.

If you are able to - go check it out.

The beauty of Red Rock Canyon is hiking the numerous trails in the park which you cannot see just driving the 13 mile loop. Unfortunately the housing development near the park has gotten out of hand. Thanks to the Clark County Commissioners and everyone else who think mass tract housing is ok near the beautiful Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area.

If you feel that way Clarkcty then you should know that the Gypsum manufacturing company wants to sell the land their factory is on to a home builder.

I am in favor of developing the area up near Red Rock. I said near, not in. Those views from the homes would be stunning, and of course one would pay a higher price for that luxury.

Take St. George UT for example, there are homes built right up the the very border fence, literally, on the Red Cliffs Deseret Preserve. So what? Their views are fantastic and the wildlife is still protected. They have hiking trails a few steps from their front door.

The new Caledonia KB homes seem to be the furthest west homes at this time. I actually looked into a few.

There is already an ongoing battle with that developer and the people who wants to protect Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area but we all know, money talks in this town.

Im sure you also appreciate the garbage left behind at Red Rock Canyon and even dog **** all over the place. I call many of the trails at Red Rock Canyon as Dog **** Trail, gross really !

I haven't really noticed that in much of the RR hikes I've done. They keep it pretty clean in there and I didn't particularly notice dog waste. It's well kept. And building homes near RR probably wouldn't contribute to those factors. Hundreds of people go through there daily already.

I've been visiting that park for like 30 years, dog waste and garbage has gotten worse. I used to remember parking near the Red Rock Canyon "welcome sign" and hike around an hour or so to reach the red rock formations. Now you have vehicles parked next to the very same red rock formations. Thanks to the mass housing development going on in the area. There are more garbage too.
