Tour Beautiful Red Rock Canyon. Looking for an adventure you're likely never to forget? TIA has secured an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of stunning Red Rock Canyon as one of this year's OTR Tire Conference social activities. Spread over 197,000-acres, the Red Rocky Canyon National Conservation Area features a wide range of ecosystems, wildlife and multicolored views. Riding in a custom Trekker vehicle, our Certified Interpretive Guide will share insight into the canyon's place as a movie backdrop, explain the area's rich history and share the meaning of the ancient pictographs you will see on the cliff walls. Awaiting near the end of the tour, the Calico Hills are truly a grand finale. Depending on the time of day, you'll see why these hills are named "Calico," a kaleidoscope of pinks, reds and oranges shift with the changing light. Space for this experience is limited to 45 attendees, so be sure to sign up early. This beautiful Southwest adventure will leave you with incredible photos and memories to last a lifetime.
