Description

Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, along Pine Creek, west of Las Vegas, Clark Co., Nevada, USA.

Pine Creek is an intermittent stream in a rocky canyon just below foothills of Spring Mountains. These were common at pools and along the stream channel, even in dry stretches. Only dragonfly species seen here, although I was looking for Red Rock Skimmers which have been reported here in past.
