Vegas For Families: Valley of Fire

Vegas for families: Valley of Fire 
We ventured off to Valley of Fire this trip so the kids could experience it. Remember to go early if you’re like us and go in the summer!  Valley of Fire is about an hour drive with one gas station stop/casino/store. Stop there if you need gas because you won’t have another chance for gas in the valley. You should also stop there because it’s unique, gifts, bathroom, and it’s interesting. 
All of the adults had been before (a first for the kids), but this is a place you can visit numerous times and it is still amazing! There are so many things to see and different trails.  Best parts: I watched the kids climb around ( no pics of climbs because I’m mom-spotting from below every time). We found many lizards because it is still early and the kids hunted for snakes although we have a variety of feelings about finding a snake! We saw the petroglyphs again which is awesome too and elephant rock of course!  For pictures

The Valley of Fire

The Valley of Fire State Park in the Summer My husband and I love to hike in New England so it’s only natural that we share this love with the locals in Nevada and ask for suggestions on where to go and what to do. One suggestion that comes up time and again is to visit The Valley of Fire State Park. Although making this trip in the summer is not ideal, when we share that we are going to embark on this adventure in July we are still given friendly, great advice Take plenty of water! and Have a great time! (which is all we needed to start planning our next adventure). Because of the dangerously high temperatures of the summer, a hike in The Valley of Fire can be somewhat last minute, but with careful planning. Since the heat can rise well into the 100’s, the best time to visit is in the morning. And, since we are from the East Coast, we thought why not plan our visit around the 5:44am sunrise.
