Valley of the Fire Pictures

After visiting the Hoover Dam, Linzy and I drove the scenic lakeshore route around Lake Mead, through the desert and up to Valley of Fire State Park.

It was a pretty cool (though small) park featuring lots of brilliant red sandstone formations.

What passes for a flower garden, in the desert.

One of the "Seven Sisters".

Petroglyphs carved by natvies long, long ago.

A cool arch you could climb up to.

Elephant rock.

A huge rock wall covered with petroglyphs.

A sandy path we hiked up to see Mouse's Tank.

Rainbow Vista, which was much more stunning in person.

Even in the desert, there are flowers here and there.
