In Search of: The Daily Photo – Valley of Fire

This is why I love Las Vegas. For some people it’s the shows, the proximity to the strip, the gambling. For me, it’s these dam pretty rocks! I mean, how can you get tired or colors like these? Gorgeous. I took this shot in Valley of Fire, about an hour outside of Las Vegas. It’s one of my favorite places ever. For reals. You drive along for an hour, and there’s nothing but desert. Nothing wrong with desert, but it all pretty much looks the same. And then, it’s as if a mirage appears. A red mirage. The land is so bright! Go a little deeper into the red, and you discover all sorts of colors: yellow, orange, purple. So, so pretty. This particular shot was captured on the way to the Fire Wave. I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of this place.
