The girls and I left California, crossing Death Valley and drove through Las Vegas (worst part of the trip for me) to get to Valley of Fire State Park. It’s a beautiful park with just 72 campsites and some good hiking trails through various rock formations, some with interesting petroglyphs. Because it is close to Vegas, it has LOTS of day use. LOTS. I was fortunate to get a nice campsite and stayed two nights. It’s not a great place to take dogs with no surface water at all. The temperature was pleasant enough for me in the mid 70’s but the dogs were not very happy. I think it’s the only place we went over three weeks that did not have some water to entertain the dogs. The flowers were very pretty, particularly the evening primroses and beavertail cactus. And the sandstone layers were wonderful.
