Fire Canyon, Valley of Fire State Park Nevada 

Man, Valley of Fire State Park is awesome!  Endless geographical colors and patterns, the photo opportunities are everywhere.  Despite numerous recommendations, I had never visited this state park – I won’t make that mistake again, heck it is only an hour from Las Vegas.

We hiked into and explored an area appropriately named Fire Canyon.  That is Janine peering out of one of many caves in the canyon.

According to a sign in the parking area – “In this region, forces within the earth have been powerful enough to cause thousands of feet of surface rock to fold, break, and in some areas push several miles from their original location.  Today, erosion has worn away the top of one great fold, exposing the sharply angles layer of rock, and creating numerous  canyons.”  In short, it is just a cool place!
