Valley of Fire State Park (continuing our visit)
The next stop after lunch was the Fire Wave which is said to resemble an ocean wave with swirling patterns of red, white, and pink sandstone Tom took this hike and the pictures below.
|Continuing down White Domes Road|
|at the end of this road|
|we reached the White Domes.|
|Just found the different rocks laying in the sand interesting.|
|A selfie with a wall of rock behind us.|
We made it to the top of the hill in the sand and
decided that was far enough.
We are now heading back down White Domes Road.
Complex uplifting and faulting of the region followed by extensive erosion, have created the present landscape. The rough floor and jagged walls of the park contain brilliant formations of eroded sandstone and sand dunes more than 150 million years old. Other important rock formations include limestones, shales and conglomerates. (information found on internet)
|Turning on to Fire Canyon Road|
(Can you see the car trying to climb the rocks?)
|The bottom picture is what was behind us in our selfie.|
|Leaving Fire Canyon Road|
|We have turned back onto White Domes Road|

|Back on Valley of Fire Road|
looking across at White Domes Road.
The beauty we experienced on this ride was a feast for the eyes. The pictures will bring back memories of all the colors and beauty we saw as we road through this park. I only wish I could have captured with the camera the colors our eyes could see.
To Be continued in our next post.
