So Hot…I’m on FIRE!

After a long day driving through the empty desert, I finally reached the Valley of Fire outside of Las Vegas. I approached the rock walls just as the sun was setting, and indeed the rock rose from the ground like a growing flame. It was something to behold, and though I was alone, I even exclaimed aloud at the sight of it. I finished setting up camp as dusk approached, and ate dinner in the dark, enjoying the gentle cool breeze. I awoke just before sunrise, and set out to view the effect of the light changing the large rocks around me. The Valley of Fire was certainly the most beautiful place I visited. I was still extremely sore from my ‘jaunt’ in Kings Canyon, and I was feeling under the weather besides, so any hiking or extensive walking around was canceled. I basically drove around, took a bazillion pictures, and wandered back to my campsite to write in my journal and listen to oldies on my shower radio. All in all, I wouldn’t have missed seeing the Valley of Fire for anything! Not only was I finally able to take a shower, thank God, but I saw solid fire. The next day, I drove out of the park at sunrise, heading towards the Grand Canyon and smelling like one hot mama.

  1. Looks like I’m going to have to add this to my list. 🙂 I haven’t been to the Grand Canyon, yet I only live about eight hours away, so I guess I will have to make sure I visit the Valley of Fire while I’m at it. Thanks for sharing. Great photos!

    • Thanks for stopping by! I think the Valley of Fire is most certainly worth a visit, and I’ll be talking about the Grand Canyon next, and posting some pretty cool pics if I do say so myself. So, make sure to come on back. 🙂
