Scenery of Valley of Fire State Park

Near Las Vegas, Nevada

large_P1060150FireWaveValleyofFireSP.JPGWe left the Grand Tetons one day early because the forecast was for snow and cold temps. We visited the Valley of Fire State Park about 45 minutes north of Las Vegas on the way home. Hiked the Fire Wave trail to see this unusual rock formation that looks like a curling wave.

We hiked the Mouses Tank trail named for an outlaw who used the area as a hideout in the 1890s.
