Valley of Fire
Visiting Valley of Fire was unexpected at best. When we were leaving Las Vegas airport, the 15 was closed, which had us sitting in at least 2 hours of traffic. So instead of sitting and waiting, we opted to take the long route. Valley of Fire is just about an hour outside of Las Vegas and is pretty spectacular. But don’t be fooled by the long canyon road in, once you go through the State Park gate you will see some astounding sights. Beautiful red formations litter the landscape and they’ll invite you to get out and take a look. There is also ample camping in the area, incase that is on your to-do list.
