Nature Notes: Valley of Fire

IMG_4495

Valley of Fire was a spontaneous stop on our trip and a great choice because there is so much to see there and because it's a beautiful place. The campground is right in the middle of that awesome landscape and there's a lot do see without having to drive anywhere.

Like the petroglyphs:

The biggest collection at Atlatl Rock is under a rock overhang and protected by glass, but there are many more if you only look for them.

This is the White Domes trail where quite a few movies have been shot, The Professionals for example or Star Trek: Generations.

With a bit of imagination, there are faces and creatures everywhere. Like this snarling cat:

or this guy, with his hair flying in the wind

and we named this one Munch's Rock:
