I've surprisingly never been to the Valley of Fire State Park outside of Las Vegas. I can't believe I haven't. It is truly amazing. I think Nevada is beautiful, there's something stunning about the subtle desert colors and the far off desert mountains, then you see the reds, the oranges, the shapes created by erosion, and suddenly nothing can compare. I highly recommend a visit if you are ever in the area. It's only an hour and a half from Las Vegas.
