                          (Clicking on the pictures will open them larger in a new window.)

Saturday, November 2, 2019

We had seen the signs on the side of the road since we arrived and so on Saturday we took a ride over to see what it was all about. Always fun to browse the booths at an Art Fair and leave some dollars behind to support the local

There are several canyons behind and next to where we are 
parked and a road right by us went down into one and then 
back up the other side. When we got back from the 
Pomegranate Festival we took a short ride. That little black 
dot at the top of the road in the picture on the top left is
 the Stinger "B".

The sun going down on our last day at Poverty Flats.

A shadow "selfie",

Looking out at the last of the sun's light.
We enjoyed out time in the Overton, NV area. Our spot at Poverty Flats was quiet and peaceful even when the popup was in our view. We are ready to move on and will do so in the morning.

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
and we are making our way back to Valley of Fire Road.

Looking ahead as we come down out of  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.
