The red rock name is spread from Oklahoma to California, and is simply an immense collection of dramatic desert lands covered in a brick-red layer of sandstone. One of the many southwest red rock areas is found at Red Rock State Park nearby Gallup, New Mexico, opened in 1972. The 640 acre park includes a nice arrangement of amenities, including a rodeo area, convention center, campgrounds and the Red Rock Museum. Exhibits offer a glimpse into the lives of ancient civilizations as well as a look into the native cultures of the today's Hopi, Zuni and Navajo tribes.
