On our drive from Utah to Las Vegas, we took a detour through Valley of Fire in Nevada. It didn't add too much time to our drive, but it added texture.
It reminded us all of one of our favorite spots: City of Rocks. Lots of interesting rock formations and plenty of area to clamor about.
We could have taken all day to play around on the rocks. Alas, we didn't have the time.
We did stop here to eat our picnic lunch which gave us a little time to goof around.
The color of the rock was so unusually vibrant. It was a perfect place to get out the car to play.
If you are in the area, it is a cool scenic drive.
