Valley of Fire --- A Series Begins

Ready or not here comes another series. The photos were taken from February 16, 2009. I get different information online as to true distance of this park from Vegas. The distance I get from different site ranges from 50 miles to 60 miles. To be safe, it's about an hour's drive via Interstate 15.
After paying the entrance fee of $6 per vehicle, off we go. It was raining in Vegas and it was no different here. At initial drive was not as scenic as the rest of the way, but I was excited as heck. I love state and national parks. I love rocks and rock formation. And I love scenic drives. Tune in for the remainder of this series.

Nice photos of I-15 :-) I never been to this state park yet. I've been to Vegas several times but didn't get to see this one.

A fine start to this series. I'm sure the park had much to offer in the way of photo opportunities. I like the highway seeming to stretch to infinity.
