Valley of Fire State Park

This is a scenic state park about 50 miles northeast of Las Vegas.  The multi-colored rocks in seemingly endless shapes and formations make it a great destination.  Hollywood has shot a number of movies here and they were filming a car commercial during my stay.

Lastly, I used Google's Sky Map on my smartphone to identify planets and major stars/constellations in the night sky.  What a great app!
