When I travel for business I try to mix in some pleasure. In most cases that means taking the weekend at the end of the trip to explore new places around the area.

This was the case with my recent trip to Las Vegas. I ended up exploring the Red Rock Canyon and Lake Mead. Beautiful places with plenty of hiking and swimming.
