With its rolling green landscape, and iron-infused red rocks and canyons speckled with green pines and bushes, the Red Rock Scenic Byway (SR 179) is a destination unto itself. Get your camera ready to capture the magnificence of nature everywhere you look. It is easy to see why this area was a favorite spot for filming Westerns in the 1940s and '50s. Be on the lookout for such wildlife as deer, eagles, elk and hawks.
