The Valley of Fire State Park is about 50 miles northeast of Las Vegas, but a million miles away culturally. The Aztec Sandstone formations are a result of 150 million year old petrified sand dunes.
One of the more interesting aspects of Valley of Fire is the variation in the colors of the rocks.
It is difficult at times to judge the scale of the landscape, until you notice the couple at the bottom center of this photo.
The erosion has left some strangely shaped rocks.
