Valley of Fire State Park

Thursday, November 19, 2015

Our visit to the Valley of Fire State Park was the last leg of our road trip to the western part of the US before taking a free and easy time at Las Vegas. From St. George, Utah we traveled an hour to reach the park. The Valley of Fire State Park was bit way off from interstate road I-35. We paid $10 USD for the entrance. It was a self pay entrance. Do it yourself payment. You have to prepare cash or a cheque, fill up a form and drop the envelope (provided by them) to the box located at the entrance.

Before we could reach the park, huge rock formations greeted us at interstate road I-35.

It was a huge park! You have to have a vehicle to be able to visit the place. There are stations inside the park where you can stop by, have a picnic or take pictures of the scenery.

One of my favorite stops was at the rainbow vista. I've never seen such beautiful multicolored rocks in my entire life until we've visited the park. Most of these rocks have lavender, yellow, orange, and red streaks that really looks beautiful in person. Unfortunately, the pictures wasn't able to depict it well.

The road, in the photo below, looks like you were passing through the valley of the shadow of death. Huge rocks are stacked upon each other on the each side.

We only spent a few hours at the park because I was getting really hungry and exhausted road tripping for 4 straight days. I just can't wait to get to Las Vegas and relax.
