Today we drove to Valley of Fire State Park. I wish we had planned to stay there longer, but alas we only had a few hours. The park is about an hour northeast of Vegas. It sits at the end of a 13 mile road through the desert and is definitely worth the drive. The landscape changes quickly to bright red sandstone formations with names like the Beehives, and Elephant Rock. There are also hundreds of petroglyphs made by the Anasazi who occupied the area between 300 BC-1150 AD. They are easily seen from the walking trail. The energy of this valley is electric and so peaceful I could’ve stayed for days.
