Valley of Fire

michelle Artisan Jewelry , , , , ,

My blog is called “A Bijou Life.” Naturally, the name is designed to complement my shop, BijouBeadBoutique, but it also intends to reference one of the definitions of bijou: something delicate, elegant, or highly prized. Especially highly-prized. And for me that means time spent with my husband. We are fortunate enough to be retired, and do spend a lot of time together – which we both love. But we still like to take time to do something special together. Saturday, that meant a top down drive in the Fiat, and picnic in the Valley of Fire. The temperature was in mid 70’s, and we were treated to a partly cloudy sky. The desert is green from recent rains.

The Valley of Fire is a 40,000 acre state park about an hour north of us known for its brilliant red rocks. And that is exactly what we went to see. Now, I’ll share the beautiful landscapes with you:

  1. we were there in October! and we came across a herd of female mountain goats – about 20 or so they were in the shade of some of the rocks! a beautiful place

    1. Thank you! The rocks were fascinating – both in the erosion and the way the angle of the layers changed from one area to the next.

    1. Apologies for my delayed response! Deserts are unique. It took me awhile to appreciate their splendor, but now they are among the most beautiful of landscapes imho.

  2. Stunning landscapes. Like you, I treasure my time with my Spouse. I cannot imagine enjoying my time in Nature without him. Thanks for sharing these photos with us. Joining you from Wandering Camera.
