Valley of Fire, Nevada

DSC06831
Last weekend, Dori and I visited Valley of Fire for the first time. We love exploring the Southwest. The road trip from Vegas is easy and less than an hour. Once at Valley of Fire, the view from the car is a scenic one; the road is very accessible to trails and the visitor center. One must get out of the car and explore without doubt! Dori and I enjoy taking photographs equally, but we made sure to enjoy moments without clicking

  1. You always show us impressive rock formations, Nature is an artist!
    About the delay, you should blame the climbing for that!
    Tenha um bom fim de semana! :)

  2. Muito obrigada Lucia! (i hope I'm thank you correctly?) =) You are so right- nature is an artist and a darn good one! I used to be a pretty good climber when I was young. ;) Tenha um bom fim de semana!

  3. The "Valley of Fire" photos are beautiful, artistic and inspiring! I love the picture of you and Dori on the rock..... and the one of you climbing to beat the timer :) It looks like you both had a fun time exploring. Thanks for sharing your adventure. I'm ready to see some of these new cool places with both of you when I come to visit again!

  7. My daughter, who is an anthropologist, immediately recognized these petroglyphs :)
    What an interesting place you have visited. The colour of these rocks and stones is unearthly.
