"Nature's Valentine" [3:2]
Valley of Fire, Nevada, USA
Natural sand figure of a heart within Pastel Canyon's sandstone colors in Valley of Fire State Park, Nevada.
Upon visiting Valley of Fire this winter, it was quickly discovered that a recent sand storm had swept the area, as sand was spread across every surface. Most photographs included hundreds of shoe and boot prints upon the canyon floors, including this location; however a *treat* such as this is always worth the extra sand! Discovered this heart nestled vertically upon a canyon wall, likely to not be repeated in the near future.
Valley of Fire is Nevada's oldest state park, dedicated in 1935. The park is situated about 50 miles northeast of Las Vegas, nestled between I-15 and Lake Mead National Recreation Area. The site was once home to the Anasazi between 300 BC and 1150 AD. Fine examples of petroglyphs and pictographs are located throughout the park.
Happy Valentine's Day!
