“Every time I’m there, I fall a little bit more in love with Red Rock Canyon. The rock looks different at all times of day and I’m blown away by the beauty of the place,” says Kyra Condie, a 20-year old Mountain Hardwear athlete with six USA National Championships to her credit. “And even though it’s so close to Vegas, you still feel secluded – that’s the real beauty of it. Having such natural beauty amid a man-made aspect of the world adds to the canyon’s majesty.”
These are busy times we live in a world that is controlled by an excessive work schedule and a permanent attachment to technology. Isn't it great when you have the opportunity unplug literally and physically every once in a while? Whether you are skiing, climbing, riding a bike or just taking a walk, being in the outdoors away from the hustle and bustle of it all can be a welcome stress reliever and a reinvigorating reprieve from the real world. Unwinding outdoors can and should be an important part of our lives and having the places to do so is a necessity.
That's why Mountain Hardwear climbers Angie Payne and Kyra Condie are taking a stand in their support of Save Red Rock and its efforts to defend the "crown jewel of the Mojave." In a blog titled "Tipping Point. Save Red Rock" Payne and Condie relay their passion for the renown climbing area and the importance of protecting these wild spaces.
