State Route 167

Our route to Valley of Fire State Park started along SR167 inside Lake Mead National Recreation Area. The road used to follow the shores of Lake Mead but now that the water levels are so low you can only occasionally see Lake Mead from the road. Even without the lake view this is a very pretty route!

   

About halfway we were stopped for a half hour due to a motorcycle accident, which sadly did not end well for riders on two bikes in a group of three bikes 😦  But it did give me a chance to get out and take some more flower pictures.

Desert Sunflower

Beavertail Cactus, the desert is covered in them!

So pretty, maybe that’s because pink is my favourite color!

We didn’t think it could get any better than the red hills we had seen along this route, but it did! Come back to tomorrow for many pictures from Valley of the Fire State Park.

  

Until next time …
