Sunday I woke up and decided that I needed a chill day. I took a bath in the morning while listening to podcasts, which may be my new favorite combo. After some family time I grabbed my camera and headed up to Valley of Fire State Park. I've been going to Valley of Fire for years to get away, catch a breath outside of Vegas. It's located about 50 minutes from here off the 15 north, super easy to get there. There is no cell reception and it's immensely quiet. Some days I've gone there during the week, on a Monday, and it's like I have the park to myself. It's a beautiful thing.
My favorite trail is the Fire Wave, it's about a half mile up and down some hills to a phenomenal multi colored rock formation. When the sun hits it at sunset it's an explosion of color. The two lane road through the park is surrounded by some killer landscapes, so much red rocks it's like Mars almost. Highly recommend if you're looking to get out of the city for a bit. I ended the day on the drive home pulling over in the middle of no where and watching the sunset explode into a pink and orange sky while listening to Frank Ocean. Perfect.
Perfect end to the day.
