What do you think about when I say Vegas? Glitz, glamour and gambling? That’s the more publized side of Las Vegas for sure.
Did you know that there are a few National parks and State parks within hours of Vegas?
- Red Rock Canyon
- Great Basin
- Valley of Fire
- Death Valley
We managed to visit two of these locations last week – Valley of Fire and Death Valley.
Valley of Fire State Park is just an hour away from Vegas by car.
Here are just a few highlights of the beauty within the park…

Petroglyph (rock carving) over 3000 years old!

Chilling in a cubby! 😀
We originally thought we would be in and out in two hours but we spent five hours there! What a fun way to spend time with the family!
So the next time you are in Vegas, check it out!
Stay tuned for photos from Death Valley…it was out of this world!!
