Valley of Fire State Park, Nevada

Because the government shutdown was ongoing, I decided to head to the California coast, where beaches and warmer temperatures could be enjoyed. Driving through Nevada however, I made a stop at Valley of Fire State Park, a stunning landscape of red sandstone, multicolored rock formations, and petroglyphs. They even have whole sections of pastel pink rock there. This incredible scenery is fairly close to Las Vegas and I’d recommend stopping by if possible.
