Valley of Fire (Nevada) State Park


vf-20.jpg

I did an SUV tour of this beautiful state park, which is less than an hour's drive from Las Vegas. The "fire" refers to the red rocks and sand. Many interesting rock formations, as well as petroglyphs left by early denizens of the area, exist there to be photographed.

Rhyolite, Nevada


bank-2.jpg

Rhyolite became a ghost town after a brief heyday in the early 20th century. Only a couple hour drive from Las Vegas, it sits close to the California border, with Death Valley not far beyond. At one time, it was the second largest city in Nevada. However, it became too expensive to mine gold, and that killed the town. Here are some photos of what remains, including the bank building, which is one of the most photographed buildings in Nevada.
