Valley of Fire State Park is an excellent (and very manageable) day trip out of Las Vegas. Highlights include red sandstone formations, a scenic drive, a few short hiking trails, petroglyphs, and desert flora and fauna. Be sure to pack a picnic lunch, sunscreen and plenty of water!
New year, new decade(?) and new adventures all come together in this month's installment of the Photo Blogging Challenge. Between New Year's Eve fireworks, checking out the Banff/Lake Louise Snow Days, a visit to Contemporary Calgary's new home, a vacation including new-to-us National and State parks and other activities, there were plenty of photos to choose from.
