Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area

A delayed flight on August, 18th, 2022 afforded me the opportunity to make a quick trip to Red Rock Canyon National Conservation area. I was pleased to learn that my Annual National Park pass provided entry to this area.

A paved loop approximately 6 miles long offers an interesting perspective without exiting the car or, one can get a little closer, take a bathroom break, and stretch a bit by parking at one or more of the designated areas along the route.

Iowa 80 Truck Stop

Purported to be the World’s Largest Truck Stop, Iowa 80 is a great place to refuel, stretch your legs, and have a quick bathroom break.

Although closed when I was passing through, across the parking lot was the Trucking Muesem. Definitely plan to stop another time because I bet it is full of trucks from years gone by.
