We spent a week at the end of March at Valley of Fire State Park, which is about an hour northeast of Las Vegas. It’s a beautiful place that screams red, from the desert sand under your feet to the gorgeous rock formations throughout the park. We were also lucky to have been there at the right time; we’re witnessing a banner spring for the deserts of the Southwest. At Valley of Fire, there were wildflowers everywhere, and, in addition to the colorful flowers, there was a nearly indescribable symphony of green on top of the red. We tried hard to capture the essence and the beauty of this pretty place.
