Valley of Fire
Every time we drive to Vegas we pass signs in Nevada to the Valley of Fire. The name was cool enough for us to want to go check it out. So we packed up a lunch and our pup and took off to see what the Valley of Fire had to offer. It did not disappoint! The red rocks were amazing! Out of nowhere they started jutting up out of the ground. It definitely lived up to it's name.
At a certain point the red rock meets up with the white. There is a clear line right through the mountain of where the red meets white.
There is an awesome spot called Rainbow Vista. The mountains are literally all colors of the rainbow. Obviously lots of red and orange, but there was yellow and golds, and our favorite, purple! Bright purple streaks all throughout the rocks and up the mountains. It was beautiful!
We had a great time and can't wait to find another new place to hike!
