The Valley Of Fire

10/11/2015

Our last day of summer spent in a very hot state park in Nevada. The name speaks for itself..

The Valley Of Fire

This place is so surreal. Driving from Las Vegas, we had to drive an hour east, and the views on the road were nothing but flat desert land with brown mountains in the horizon. We drove through the mountains to get to this park, and once we’ve crossed the canyons, the mountains opened up and we saw a land that was very red in color.

“That’s It!”

The place had so many rock formations, and we were so sad to only have an afternoon to explore. The place is known for its mini arches, so we kept an eye out for those. It was naturally beautiful.

Another great spot in the Valley Of Fire State Park is their Rainbow Vista. From our point of view we could see rock formations and mountain with 3 different colors! It was such a beautiful thing to see.
