Stripless In Las Vegas: Day 3

Education & Training with Although I'm retired, I love sharing my knowledge and learning from other real estate industry professionals.

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.

Sounds great Carol Williams and thanks for adding a new word to my vocabulary "petroglyphs". I had to look that one up so now I'm a little better educated thanks to you.

Good morning Carol,

Reminded me of the Petrified Forest and painted Desert in New Mexico and well worth the drive.

Make yourself an astonishing day.

Hi Carol Williams ,  That's why I don't wish to travel to other countries.  We have a lot to see all over this beautiful country.  Everywhere you go  you see different landscapes unlike other areas.

Larry Johnston , You are so right!  I did a lot of international traveling with my husband for his work, and it is very fascinating to visit other parts of the world. However, most of us don't have to go too far from home to be amazed by the beauty in our own back yards.  Thanks for reading and commenting.   Happy Easter.
