Red Rock Canyon sits just south of Summerlin near Las Vegas and is known for its 13-mile drive around the red clay walls of the valley. On the floor of the canyon is desert brush on rocky soil and the occasional yucca and cactus. I'm always drawn to flowering cactus, but this buckhorn cholla was exceptional compared to most, as well as having yellow instead of the usual red or magenta flowers. This photo is easily one of my favorite cacti pics.
