Roses on the Lake
Roses on the Lake It’s early spring and the roses already have to start their job. Around here, they keep going until November. It’s a tough blooming job, but they wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.
Mount Wilson at Red Rock
Mount Wilson at Red Rock The magnificent sandstone cliffs of Red Rock National Conservation Area are also visible from many parts of Desert Shores, especially this area at the Racquet Club. The large sandstone block at the right is the imposing Mount Wilson, a tough climb through First Creek Canyon that’s an easy 20-mile drive from here. The snow-covered Escarpment Crest of Red Rock is visible in the left background.
Bridge Mountain at Red Rock
Bridge Mountain at Red Rock The magnificent sandstone cliffs of Red Rock National Conservation Area are also visible from many parts of Desert Shores, especially this area at the Racquet Club.

The snow-covered Escarpment Crest of Red Rock is visible in the background.
Rainbow Mountain at Red Rock
Rainbow Mountain at Red Rock The magnificent sandstone cliffs of Red Rock National Conservation Area are also visible from many parts of Desert Shores, especially this area at the Racquet Club.

Mesmerizing Every Time

The Last Rays of the Sun
The Last Rays of the Sun The lakes are sensitive and responsive to the most subtle changes of light. As the sun drops, the scene changes minute by minute.

Pausing to Reflect
Pausing to Reflect In nearly all of Las Vegas, you can’t see the mountains from your house or neighborhood because there’s a house in the way or the slope is too gradual. Here, the expanse of the lake also gives you the mountains. At Desert Shores, we’re twice blessed!
Depth
Depth Everywhere you turn, something else reveals its secrets. The views of the mountains here are as multi-dimensional as the lakes. Here, a series of ridges flows back to culminate in the 11,500-foot crest of Mummy Mountain.
Sky and Water
Sky and Water On summer nights with clouds, the sky and the water share color but not texture, merging gently in the hub of Desert Shores.
Boating in the Tropics
Boating in the Tropics Whether you use one of the Desert Shores boats or your own, you can’t help but feel like you’re in the Caribbean when you sail by the beach and lagoon.
From the Back of the Cruise Ship
From the Back of the Cruise Ship It's not hard to imagine exactly this view standing in the back of a large cruise ship as it leaves its gorgeous Port of Call behind.
Lonesome Sailor
Lonesome Sailor Believe it or not, this was taken in winter. More often than not, the water is like glass and even a small bird can create a wake like an ocean liner.
Snow Kidding
Snow Kidding When the mountains get snow, it's a different kind of eye candy. Turtlehead Peak at the left tops out at 6,300 feet, while the highest peak in the Le Madre ridge at the right is 8,200 feet. It's not the best time to climb either one, but it can be done!
Salt and Pepper
Salt and Pepper A study in contrasts, a distinct line divides light and dark from the lake to the sky, while the snow on the mountain does the same thing in the other direction.
