From the mountains and hills of California, the furthest west we traveled on our trip (Yosemite) we commenced our extensive journey house. Our up coming cease was close to 6 several hours away and was basically a totally various planet from Yosemite and Mammoth Lakes. We used an whole day driving from central California to Western Nevada, driving across the desert on the 4th of July is a memory I will not likely at any time neglect. Looking at fireworks shoot up in excess of the sand was very an awesome thing to see, we ended up being right away in a town named Overton in a really neat minimal hotel, since we received to our place in the evening we decided to wait around til early morning to do some exploring.
1st thing in the early morning we have been off, The Valley of Fire was our up coming place, one particular of the several Point out Parks that we decided to verify out on the trip.Valley of Fire was unusual, in a excellent way. The rocks and formations of the park are probably the weirdest I have at any time found, the rocks have a type of “crusty” look to them which would make them so exceptional. Valley of Fire as hosts an abundance of all-natural arches.
However, we only had a several several hours to investigate the park but we did control to verify out a good deal of it, even accomplishing a brief hike or two wherever I encountered some huge lizards that I hope to ID in this article quickly. The desert was entire of lifetime, we have been blessed sufficient to place a group of bighorn sheep as properly.
Just a several several hours from Las Vegas, Valley of Fire in my opinion is a should see. Consider a day out of your gambling, partying and go see some thing that you are going to bear in mind endlessly, you will not likely be let down. Hope you guys enjoy the new set!
