ROAD TRIP: VALLEY OF FIRE!
Today's post is going to be FIRE!🔥 Speaking metaphorically of course, because we're going on a road trip to one of Nevada's most symbolic state parks called Valley of Fire. It's full of red shaped sandstone formations, which are so worth seeing in person...vivid, majestic, and a whole lot of picturesque. Are you ready? Grab your bestie (like me) and let this desert trip begin, NOW!!!
This past weekend on Saturday, my sister and I decided to spend the whole day there. We packed our bags. Okay, I admit I packed two bags🤣 and drove to the Valley of Fire. It was about an hour drive from where we live. Just perfect to warm-up my vocals in the car...hahaha. Yep, I sing my heart-out while I enjoy the surrounding views from the tiny old wooden farm houses to the endless green fields. Such a fun adventure especially since this is our first road trip of 2020.🤗
Fun fact: The name Valley of Fire, comes from the fact that the whole valley looks like it's on fire. I'm telling you fire attracts fire (I'm a fire sign)...hahaha! Now, I know why this park was calling my name all this time!
~ If you're wanting to visit soon, the entrance fee is $10. It was super hot as expected, so pack lots of water. Also, be sure to have your camera in hand because everywhere you turn, there is an opportunity to capture plenty of cool scenic views. Ready to see my photos?👀
So what do you think? Have you been to the Valley of Fire, yet? If so, what was your favorite part?
I really loved the whole trip there, but my favorite part was seeing the "Seven Sisters". They are tall, rocky boulders, that are seven in count and look a lot alike, hence their name. The photo of me above in my work-out attire is from there. I'm between two of the sisters! hahaha. I felt part of the family immediately!😂
I wouldn't mind visiting this park again. It's unique in its own way and a bit different from what I'm used to here at Red Rock Canyon. Also, next time my sister and I can even hit a few of the hiking trails since that's one of our favorite hobbies to do together. Best kind of therapy...we talk, laugh and occasionally get scared when imagining the snakes that roam around the desert. Speaking of animals, we saw a big ram with huge horns up-close from our car. It looked unreal at first like a statue until it started to move. It was beautiful!😱
And just like that, the hours disappeared, the sunset accompanied us on our journey home and I'm happy to share this road trip here with you. Thanks for coming along for the ride!!!🚗
See you again, next Tuesday!!!
