We loved the Valley of Fires. Though I am not sure whether it is named after the old lava flow, or for the skies and sunsets. What a gorgeous place, thanks Annie!
Fire in the Sky
We parked on top of the hill, with amazing views, took photos, and went hunting snakes, bats, golden eagles and tarantulas (seriously - these spiders live in the lava field, and are apparently quite shy; we couldn't find any!)
Here's a selection of our photos:
Unfortunately, our water heater failed, so after a couple of days here, we headed back to civilisation (Alamagordo, NM), to seek repairs!!
