A Unique Rock Formations in Valley of Fire State Park

Monday, October 15, 2018
Valley of Fire is Nevada’s oldest and largest State park in America. The Valley of Fire derives its name from red sandstone formations, formed from great shifting sand dunes during the age of dinosaurs, 150 million years ago. Complex uplifting and faulting of the region, followed by extensive erosion, have created the present landscape. There is something about road tripping into the Nevada desert. I see beauty, so many hidden treasures. The  park is a photographer’s paradise full of stunning rock formations in all the colors of the rainbow. You don’t even have to hike anywhere to see beauty like this. But I couldn’t stop myself from taking the opportunity to explore this amazing land. There is an endless supply of stunning views with fabulous color, lines and textures.

The best time of the day to be here is dusk because that's when you find out exactly why they call it Valley of Fire. Yes, it's obviously the iron infused rocks, but the way the sun hits them around sunset literally makes the hills look like flames.

Nature is the art of God , what a stunning human head shape red rocks.

Visiting the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area

Sunday, October 7, 2018
We driven 13 miles loop  through Red Rock  and enjoyed the peace, the views, and especially getting out of Vegas.  This park is only a short drive  like 30 minutes from the Vegas  Strip.  So its hard to miss it.  It has lots of hiking trails and picnic areas just a neat place to go to rest and contemplate life. For anyone who appreciates natural beauty and being one with nature, Red Rock Canyon is for you.

The park and visitors center is very well done. You can drive through the park and stop at several spots to take pictures and enjoy the views. The views change from mile to mile, but the majesty of nature is evident everywhere.

Red Rock Canyon is part of the Mojave Desert, which stretches out to the corners of California, Utah, Arizona and Nevada.
