Valley of Fire

2010-03-30 9

Valley of Fire was an amazing experience for me. Among all of the rock formations in Nevada, this is the most beautiful I’ve seen!

This State Park is located northeast of Las Vegas, and very near Lake Mead. Once you enter the park, you basically drive through the different spots such as the Crab, The Elephant Rock, Beehives, Seven Sisters and the Fire Canyon.

We went there during noontime when the sun was high up in the sky and it really felt being in the valley of fire! Before taking pictures, we enjoyed a family picnic in one of the many picnic locations in the park. We were starting to unpack when we thought it was cute that there were little squirrels hanging around. But as we ate, they started to gather… and gather. Until there were around a hundreds of them warily approaching our table!!! (They probably loved the smell of Filipino food!) After we finished eating, we quickly packed our stuff, threw away a few pieces of left over by the far side of the area and ran for it while they were distracted!

After our little adventure we started going around the different rock formations and were amazed by interesting rocks such as one shaped like a huge monstrous crab and a stone-cursed elephant! The most breathtaking site for me was the Fire Canyon where you would see endless bright red rocks of different shapes and peaks! It was like seeing a frozen sea of fire…

So when you go to Nevada, aside from visiting the Las Vegas Strip, you should go and see the Valley of Fire for yourself! (I personally recommend it over Red Rock Mountain!)

    Celeste Ortiz: Analog Possibilities

    Photography has been described as a time-stopping device, something that “freezes” an action. This moment on-pause is the most salient; all conversation about the picture will tend to pin down the beauty of that second. Celeste Ortiz’s photos make us think of something else. A sense of continuation.
