Valley of Fire State Park is an amazing park within an hour’s drive from the Las Vegas strip.  It feels like a world away.

It boasts of red rocks and beautiful sceneries.  Driving around or hiking, this park is such a treat to the senses.

Rock formations like these are aplenty and are one of the main attractions.

Also attracting hikers are petroglyphs left by old inhabitants, Indian natives.

The drive back is as pretty as the ride coming in.  If you want to see the rest of the photos, please click here. Of course I took more photos than that 🙂

    These are really beautiful rock formation. The colors are just so RED, and I am loving it. I wonder what is the best time to visit? The scenery looks so crisp and fresh!

    I love the red rock formations. We lived 25 years in Colorado Springs and we had formations that were distinguishable like your duck. Thanks for your visit.

    I love Valley of Fire State Park, though we haven’t been there in a lot of years. I guess we’re overdue for a return visit! Beautiful, beautiful pictures.

    Also, thanks for stopping by my blog. Happy Thursday! 🙂

    Wow. It never ceases to amaze me how many wonders there are right here in my own country that I may never get to see. The slide show was amazing!

    It’s so cool to see a post about a place I’ve been. I camped there once and it is really beautiful! There are areas where it looks as though it was under water at one point. That red soil is beautiful.
