Sky Splendor

I was visiting Las Vegas, and wanted to get away from the fast - paced city. I took a drive through the desert, and ended up at Valley of Fire State Park. The rock formations were beautiful to look at. I took many photos while touring the park. When the sun started to set, the night sky burst into vibrant color. I was in awe of the colorful rock formations, but with the sky being a magnificent and colorful backdrop, the beauty of nature caressed my soul.
