Not far from Las Vegas is a beautiful state park called Valley of Fire State Park. It’s another location with vast, colorful views and unique rock formations. We didn’t have time to take the hiking trails, but the road throughout the park offers many stop-offs for sightseeing and photography.
Every road in the park offers spectacular scenery to enjoy.
There was also abundant wildlife, though I only captured these young bighorn sheep because the other critters are nocturnal. We didn’t witness the bighorn climbing rocks, but were told they navigate them in seemingly impossible ways.
There are some places in the park where the rock formations were interesting. Some of them looked as if ancient giant dogs left piles of excrement. Some shapes were streamlined and breathtaking.
I’m not sure if I was being overly dark in my imagination, but some of the formations were spooky. Here, to me, the formations resemble humans in deep pain and agony.
I’m going to throw the next ones in to see what they look like to the reader.
This was another afternoon shared with good friends, Roy and Judy, and one of our last excursions before they prepared for their journey back to Florida.
Our obligatory selfie to prove we were there:
Valley of Fire is a unique park to visit because of the myriad of formations, vivid colors, and diverse activities. They have a campground (first come, first served–and it was full), and there is also rock climbing and hiking that offer views even more beautiful than a ride throughout the roadways. It offers something for everyone–from the physically challenged to the athletic and adventurous. Frankly, in my opinion, it’s beautiful and definitely worth the visit.
