Valley of Fire

There are no words to describe the natural beauty of this colorful hill at the Valley of Fire in Nevada. This valley was once an ancient ocean dating back over 150 million years ago, today is Nature's masterful creation through the geological process of faulting and erosion. The vibrant colors rich in minerals, unique shapes, and rainbow vistas makes it the perfect place to explore at sunset because the light illuminates the valley bringing out the texture and colors in the rocks.
