I would really love to have more time to explore more of this area. Much different than the green lushness of where I live.My hubby gave a friend away at a wedding in Las Vegas, Nevada. We did several day trips around the area. One of the most memorable was north of Vagas to the Valley of Fire State Park. Thought I'd just share a few photos of a climate/ecosystem quite different from where I live. This area is considered high desert. The color of the rocks were surreal. The plants were intriguing to me also. Wish we would had time to camp at the campgrounds for a few days and hike around the area more. There were many areas of the park we didn't see on our day trip.
