Summer in the desert

Summer in the desert

It's no secret my deep nature love is for the desert. 

My Nevada print photo was taken at the Valley Of Fire during a hot summer day adventure. The park derives its name from red sandstone formations, the Aztec Sandstone, which formed from great shifting sand dunes during the age of dinosaurs. These features often appear to be on fire when reflecting the sun's rays.

Located 50 miles (80 km) northeast of Las Vegas, it's the perfect day hike or drive to incorporate to your road trip (and what west coast road trip doesn't end in a night in Vegas?). Covering an area of almost 42,000 acres, there's plenty to explore.

Back to our short voyage - here's a bit more of this beautiful day in the sun. All photos were taken by me, and you should thank me for not posting the entire 818 of them.  Not too long after, this beautiful desert inspired our Nevada Wristlet ClutchNevada Fold Over Clutch, Nevada Pouch and the Nevada Monochrome Pouch
