WEB EXTRA: Safety tips for hiking at Red Rock Canyon

LAS VEGAS - When imminent weather rolls through Red Rock Canyon, the Bureau of Land Management wants hikers to stay safe.

"We do get people that kind of ignore the warnings," said Kate Sorom, a park ranger at Red Rock Canyon. "Hopefully all goes well and they learn quickly from their mistake."

For those who are up for an adventure during a storm, she offers these safety tips.
