Valley of Fire

We came to Valley of Fire for the nature walk through the lava beds. Also, there is a really nice BLM campground here with panoramic view of the lava beds.



very nice walk winds it way through these 5,000 year old lava beds. The lava here did not flow from a volcano, but from vents in the valley floor. This must have been a horrifying sight for paleo-man. 






Many beautiful flowers make this harsh environment home. 

I only saw this one lizard, though the information signs say the area is rich in fauna. 


Tonight we are camped at Bottomless Lakes State Park. (33.31855, -104.33269)  Some of our group are taking a sunset paddle around the lake. These lakes were formed by sink holes.
