Description:
Valley o Fire State park in Nevada was created by the forces of wind, rain, heat, time and even ice. This stone elephant at the Valley of Fire a is huge remarkable landmark of the dessert. A giant rock that looks like an ancient mammoth. Elephant Rock is a testament to the many varied stone shapes at Valley of Fire, thanks to the wonders of geology and the erosive power of weather. As tiy cab see it is an easy hike from the roadway. Lake Mead is in the backgroud. Its about a hour or less drive from Las Vegas and the park makes for a great day trip. Go by the senic route along the lake and you will feel like you have entered a different planet. Here is a link too another super photo from the American southwest.
