Forty miles north of Las Vegas is a gem of a state park. The Valley of Fire State Park in Nevada is worth the drive if you ever get the the Las Vegas area. The weather was perfect and the rocks were striking colors of red, yellow, white, and dark brown. The formations were unlike we have ever seen. These red clay sculptures were pitted with nooks and crannies that caught the sun from many angles creating shadows that constantly changed. The road was one of the curviest and twistiest two-lane rides we have experienced. The road is a one-way ride. All the way in and all of the way out. But each way the sun was at a different angle and all of the crevices shadowed up and were mysterious. Click on the link below for a gallery of all the Valley of Fire photos.
