Some like the all-night party, the clubs, the shows, and the slots, and in Las Vegas, you can do all that 24 hours a day. Whatever happens in Vegas, so they say. But if you have no great attraction to the glitz, glam, or gambling, there is an entire world within an hour’s ride from the Strip that offers a complete and delightful contrast to the man-made attractions. The face of this city changes every decade, but once away from the burning lights, the clock ticks in geologic time. There’s a wondrous world of wide-open country waiting for exploration just outside the city limits.
