12/18 Valley of Fire State Park, NV

This state park, about 50 miles north of Las Vegas, was very strongly recommended to me.  That recommendation was not a disappointment!  I like to take pictures of long, empty roads, and this is the one entering the park.

What a campground and what a view!  Actually the campground is one of the most scenic places in the park.  Nice spots, many with electric and water hookups.  The only negative is that the sun sets behind the big rocks at 4:00 p.m. this time of year. 

The red rocks are sandstone from beneath an ancient sea.  The darker and higher mountains in the distance are also sandstone, but from a different and older sea. You can see my motorhome in the far right.

 This is a very nice picnic area near this group of rocks which are called the "Seven Sisters."  Nice place to sit and eat in the shade, especially in the hot summer.
