Red Rock National Conservation Area is located just miles from the Las Vegas strip. The natural beauty that surrounds Las Vegas is really outstanding! Yet, when you say Las Vegas, the first thing people think of is the casinos, slot machines, endless buffets and the shows. But all around Las Vegas you have some of the most beautiful locations in the American Southwest. Out of the countless areas to spend a nice day out, Red Rock is and should be at the top of the list.
Vandalism and theft has reached this small iconic ghost town just about an hour outside of Las Vegas, Nevada. In Nevada sets Nelson's Ghost Town, an eclectic spot to photograph and see some very unique items. Here you will find two planes that were crashed and now are being preserved, one with its tail up, and another missing an entire wing. You'll also find lots of old cars and some unique buses or conversions along with some interesting buildings. These buildings are homes to even more eclectic and unique items and rooms which are fun to see and great for photography. The trade of here is that you pay to visit the property since it is private and you must be aware at all times about rattlesnakes that are indigenous to the area. Because of these unique items and scenery, Nelson has been a popular spot to shoot music videos (Journey has been one) and movies. Now sadly, this beautiful location has been reduced in size because of vandalism and theft.
