Rock Formations

Friday, May 10, 2013
Valley of Fire is Nevada’s oldest and largest state park. 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 Off-Roading and going out into the Nevada desert. I happen to love the desert. Where most see nothing but dirt and rocks. I see beauty, so many hidden treasures. The  park is a photographer’s paradise full of stunning rock formations in all the colours 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 colour, lines and textures. Many thanks to my wonderful husband for bringing me here. I will surely remember this for the rest of my life.

The Beehives are so named because they tend to resemble beehives. This effect is caused by erosion, mostly wind, or Aeolian processes
