It’s always best to keep an eye out for jackasses in the roadway, whether you ride a motorcycle or drive a car. I found this sign on the road leading into Red Rock Canyon, Nevada, and there actually were some jackasses nearby — beside the road, not in it.

If you’ve never been here, it’s absolutely stunning, and only a 30-minute drive from Las Vegas. The highlight is its 13-mile scenic loop — well-worth the price of admission: $7 for a car, $3 for a motorcycle.

Stay tuned — in a future post, I’ll have more photos from Red Rock Canyon’s scenic loop.

    In the Middle East, where I travel most, I have to watch the wild camels rather than jackasses, but the effect colliding with one of them would be the same.

    Fun photo! Red Rock Canyon is great. Loved taking a break from the Strip out there last June. Took a nice hike. Look forward to seeing more of your pics.

      Cathy, I agree, it’s a beautiful place, great place to get away from Vegas for a little while.
