Valley of Fire

We took a day to drive just northeast of Vegas to Nevada's Valley of Fire State Park. It is located in the Mojave Desert. The rocks appear to be on fire.








This is Arch Rock. Here is where a native American Fugitive, Mouse, hid away in the 1890's. Mouse's Tank is a natural basin in the rock where water collects after rainfalls, sometimes remaining for months.

While walking we passed a number of prehistoric Indian petroglyphs.









The 1966 movie The Professionals was filmed here at the White Domes.






Truly an amazing place.

Hey, thank you for commenting on my blog regarding the post on the Breaking Dawn cover. Yes, it's definitely interesting to see what it really means, as the previous covers have a hidden meaning respectively. Are you awaiting the Twilight movie adaptation in December? MTV.com has released an exclusive clip on their site. Go check it out if you haven't! There's a link from my blog. (:
Once again, thanks!
