Valley of Fire: A Colorful Diversion
Still driving around the park, but pretty much done with sightseeing and was on the way out when we spotted this van parked roadside. This side of the road didn't look very promising for sightseeing, so we were curious why a photography school van was parked here. Surely there must be something very interesting in this part for them to stop here. So we did too.
What we found was what appeared to be a dead/dried up river bed. We did not see the people who owned the van, but we were pretty much occupied by the river bed itself.
The river twists and turns and you can see the impressions left by the water level on the sandstones.
We couldn't follow the rest of the dry river because of the lateness of the hour and when we reached this part, we decided to go back to the car because the sun would be out very soon.
This is MY WORLD for this week.
