I grew up in a densely populated urban area. Wide landscape views were rare. So when I discovered the deserts, I was hooked. Sweeping views in all directions and colors that I had never imagined in nature.
Last year I visited the Valley of Fire State Park for the first time. The Valley of Fire State Park is a little over an hour outside Las Vegas, and is the oldest and largest state park in Nevada.
One of the parks biggest attractions is the Fire Wave, red, white, and pink layered sandstone that resemble ocean waves. Withe sweeping backdrop views of red rocks, this is one of the most beautiful areas in the park.
For best lighting come very early in the morning for sunrise or late afternoon for sunset. Note that the park closes between sunset and sunrise.
