Well, I made the name Sherbet Hill up.  I’m not sure if this amazing place has a name – as I have never seen a photo of this place, but I thought the name was fitting!

We meet up with some good friends from Seward recently, and I couldn’t wait to show them Valley of Fire, so we returned to the Park on Saturday.  I hit a couple of familiar spots, and tried unsuccessfully to find the Desert Bighorn.  We then decided to go for a nice hike.  I pretty much picked a random spot, and went a random direction in a trail-less area to see what we could find.  Well what was found is pictured above – I think it has to be one of the most unique and beautiful little places I have ever seen!  It  looked like someone had poured drums of paint down the side of this hill – words really don’t do it justice.

I have photos with and without Janine – I posted one with her in it for scale – in fact, I have all kinds of variations as there are pretty much an infinite number of possibilities here.  It was fairly overcast – ideal conditions for this colorful landscape.  I wish I had more time – I could spend weeks hiking this park, who knows what else it out there.

    Thanks Dennis!

    I hear you Michael – there certainly is a big part of me that hates to bring attention to such a beautiful place, so close to a town the size of Vegas. Being able to easily avoid any sign of people just adds to the beauty.

    Thanks for the comment!

  2. Hey Ron,

    Really nice – the scale makes it work, and the tones and textures really rock. I’m sure this one will do you well. Great photo.

    Cheers

    Carl
