valley of fire

ok I teased you the other day with a better place then red rock canyon in Vegas, Nevada and here it is:

this is your first glimpse just after arriving at the pay station.  $10 gets a car load into this beautiful park full of surprises. 

valley of fire also happens to be Nevada's first state park as well.

so if you have a choice and can only do one state park while in vegas go to this one.  its about 50 miles from the strip and so worth it.

this post is part of the creative exchange.  Check them out some awesome talent there.


  1. Hiya,
    Such dramatic surroundings.
    Makes me a touch envious at times :-)
    Our environs are nice, and gentle, but now and then I crave wild and majestic.
    Thanks for giving me a taste of it.

  2. I've just come back from a clamber over those red rocks in flickr, red your semaphore and climbed up those hewn out treads. Wonderful.

  3. Looks so beautiful, I'm drawn to red rock.

  4. What a gorgeous photograph this is! I can see why it is called Valley of Fire. the colors are just wonderful!

    Thank you so much for sharing this today at The Creative Exchange.

    Have a wonderful day!


  5. This looks so beautiful - that could be a destination for Christmas break!

  6. I have received two postcards back, still waiting and checking for the last little two to arrive! It has been a nice project to be part of. Love you header photo, stunning scenery!
