Is There A Geologist In The House?

Flying into Las Vegas from San Jose in August, I spotted these two really red outcrops of rock from my plane window, just northwest of town. Does anyone know what that formation is? I’d never been there before, and would hesitate to guess. My degree is in earth science, but not being on the ground to look at the stuff, I have no idea what it is; it just really stood out.
