Valley of Fire

I was lucky enough to grow up near the burnt pink and orange sandstone cliffs of Valley of Fire. I think it truly is one of the most beautiful places around, and I have so many great memories of picnicing there as a kid with relatives and hiking around with family and friends. Sure the desert has its downfalls, but it has the spectacular beauty of places like Valley of Fire as well.

My little sister is moving to Hawaii next month and for our last family get-together in a while at least, she wanted to go out to Valley of Fire one last time before they go. I'm glad she picked that as something she wanted to do! We don't get out there nearly often enough.
I love these cute kids!

If you wonder where Isaac is, just find his Bampa, and you'll find Isaac.


Finley was not happy with all the wind.

How fun! I have driven by the exit for that on the freeway a million times, but I have never ventured off the see the park. It looks beautiful! I'll have to do it next time! :-) I hope you had a good trip.

Valley of Fire does make for some great pictures. I didn't know if everyone would want to go there, but Cass was the charger of this weekend, so I let her choose. It turned out to be a great choice. We all got some excellent pics. We're so glad you and Keith could be there with us all. It's so fun to all be together! Love those cute little twerps!

Your pictures are cute! I haven't been to the Valley of Fire since High School. Maybe I should take my kids there!
