We now take a trip to Las Vegas every year for our anniversary, since we honeymooned there. We have also discovered over our years together, we both enjoy getting outside to hike and explore.
Here are some of our favorite stops at Valley of Fire. We entered the park on the west side and ventured to the east for our one day adventure to the park.
When you first enter the park from the west, you past the Beehives on your right. M.G. loved crawling all over the rocks and even found a place to relax!
As you enter the park from the west, Arch Rock is located on your left near Atlatl Rock. Arch Rock was been formed by million of years of water and wind erosion.
Atlatl is a tool used to throw a spear. Petroglyphs here show how they were used. After a short climb up the stairs, you are face to face with the petroglyphs…How cool?!?!
Here are a few more pictures of petrified logs and elephant rock.
So these are a few of our favorite stops at Valley of Fire. Can’t wait to go back hiking in the West in the Fall!
