Continuing with my series on how to enjoy a vacation in the Las Vegas area without ever going to the glitz of the famous Strip, I'll share another adventure from earlier this month.
Today's adventure took us to the Valley of Fire State Park, 52 miles Northeast of Las Vegas. The Valley of Fire is Nevada's oldest State Park, dedicated in 1935. It is quite large and very diverse. It includes areas of petrified wood and 3,000 year old Indian petroglyphs.
If you are in the Vegas area, I highly recommend saving a day to go to this State park, preferably during a week day in the off-season, when the traffic won't be quite so bad as on the week-ends.
At the entry to the park, the Park Rangers will caution you to observe the speed limit to avoid turning wildlife into a hood ornament. It is a windy, two lane, road.
Don't be in a rush going through the park because there are scads of pull-off points for hiking and picture taking opportunities. Don't rush. Enjoy the incredible beauty of nature.
Another amazing Stripless day in the Vegas area.
