VALLEY OF FIRE

WESTERN FENCE LIZARD
WESTERN FENCE LIZARD

My husband and I were on a detour off a main road, due to construction, when we came across this place in Nevada. The Valley of Fire is a state park, close to Lake Mead and not too far from the Arizona border. On this day, the stark red against the clear and vivid blue sky was surreal. These creations are made of red sandstone, formed millions of years ago, by shifted sand dunes, uplifts, and faults in the region, along with erosion from wind and rain. The formations include arches, pores, and cliffs, along with rock art, called petroglyphs, created by the ancient Anasazi people of the region, around 2000 years ago. There were many birds and reptiles throughout the red rocks on this day, these are a few shots from this amazing find in the southwest.
