Thanks to @Terri French 's beautiful images of her visit to the Valley of Fire State Park in Nevada, I added that stop to our recent trip. The rocks are so red, that in processing my images, I kept de-saturating the images because they were toooooo red! LOL! So here are some de-saturated photos of this wonderful area.

Its a beautiful place. I have enjoyed seeing the petroglyphs there as finding these is a hobby of mine. It gives one a different take on what is now a beautiful, but barren, land that once was much different. One has to think about people from long ago who lived there in a different time and climate.
Thanks for the photos, they bring back lots of nice memories from my last visit there some years back.

We stayed on Nellis AFB and drove the 37 miles out to the western entrance to the park. Overton, NV is about 15 miles from the eastern entrance to the park.

I’m so glad you shared these. It’s an interesting place that you captured so well!
Thanks, Terri. We either visited or drove by several places of which you have shown photos of here on NikonCafe. I kept telling my husband "....and Terri's photos of here are amazing!....."

It was snowing and there we didn't find any owls or much wildlife, but I enjoyed seeing the petroglyphs.
Enjoyable set! I just love red rock country and these photos make me wanna return.
Thanks so much, Mike!
Lovely set Karen. Great colors, compositions and beautiful location.
Appreciate it, Binnur!
Nice set, Karen. Some crazy looking rocks.
Crazy and colorful! It really reminded me of Utah......
Lovely images Karen.
Thanks, Bill!
I have slides of the area when we visited in 96/98, not sure which trip. Great images Karen! .
Appreciate the comments, Wade!

We stayed there heading to Calif and again on the way back. They have a really nice RV park there. Not a great part of town, but very secure on base and a good place from which to make day trips.
