As mentioned last time, upon leaving the Valley of Fire, we passed through the Lake Mead National Recreation Area. When your hear "Lake Mead," you undoubtedly think of boats, waterskis, noise, fishing, bikinis by the score, and whatever you might think of. What we noticed was the geology. Guess we're getting older.
Our heads were turning left and right (mostly right) as we passed these wonderful geological treats. We hope you'll be as amazed at some of them as we were! We can't give you names of most formations, because we were in a hurry to get home after our big day. We just were agog at the sights!
As you view these pictures, you may want to ask whether we tweaked them just a bit. Yes, we did. The camera sees differently than the human eye and mind. Tweaking the pictures helps to restore what we saw and what we felt while we looked at those mountains. So sit back and accept our version of what we saw and what we felt.
These next two pictures are of what the National Park Service calls the "Bowl of Fire," which to us seemed like an extension of the Nevada State Park's Valley of Fire.
This last picture made us think of a person sleeping, or possibly even a mummy.! What do you see here?
