Rogers Spring spills into a channel at Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, Nevada

The bright colors and the appeal of clear water made this spot irresistable.  Water tumbles over the spillway at Rogers Spring in Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, a spectacular region of natural wonders east of I-15, northeast from Las Vegas.  The drive from Las Vegas on Charleston Boulevard / State Route 159 abruptly leaves urban civilization for immense, rugged spaces and eventually leads to a crazy-quilt of red rock formations.  For its seeming remoteness, this splendid natural area can be enjoyed from well-paved roads.
