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.
