In just 5 minutes or so as you leave the Las Vegas glitz, the road once more runs through desert, and we breathed clear air and delighted in the wide vistas. Soon we took a side road which led to a State Park called 'Valley of Fire', and this proved to be a wonderful detour. We entered a wide valley between mountains, with rich red rock outcrops which included other coloured strata. It’s difficult to describe, ...

Thank goodness for the Neogene Period (23-7 MYA) when widespread forests slowly draw in massive amounts of CO2, gradually lowering the level from 650 ppmv down to around 100 ppmv. Human life develops!

It's a beautiful route, through rough lava sections and climbing up and over red rock trails, some of which look like poorly maintained sidewalks, per Lynn.

While we have no specific agenda this summer, other than waiting for our next grandson to arrive, we are getting around to see a few sites in spite of the hot, dry desert weather. It's been awhile since it has been below 95 degrees and it will no doubt get hotter as the summer progresses. We figured it would be good to get some historic sites covered ...
