Even though we spent a few days in Las Vegas at the start of this trip, I'm not going to waste my time writing about that. Needless to say, that city and what goes on there is so not me! I've never been, so now I can say that I have. It's not a place that I would go to just to hang out. In this case, it was the starting place for our tour.
On the first day, we did a day trip to the Valley of Fire, which is north of Las Vegas and in Nevada. It is a red rock area with a lot of hiking trails, rock art, and a very nice visitor's center. I will let the photos give you an idea of what we experienced.
