Highlights from our 6 week Road Trip

For the next few weeks, possibly months, we will be sharing highlights from our road trip we took in April from Pittsburgh, Pa. along the east coast, across the south via Route 10, up to Zion National Park and the Grand Canyon and then back to Pittsburgh. My daughter and I decided to take a last minute road trip in April. You would think this type of trip would require a good bit of planning. But thanks to technology we were on the road within a week of deciding to take the trip. We signed up for Verizon Broadband Anywhere service, packed my laptop, had the car checked out....a Nissen Versa and had our bikes checked out and we hit the road.

Soooooo, here is highlight #1... Valley of Fire - Nevada

Valley of Fire State Park was one of my favorite stops and is located northeast of Las Vegas via Interstate 15 and on exit 75. Valley of Fire is Nevada's oldest and largest state park, dedicated 1935. The valley derives its name from the red sandstone formations and the stark beauty of the Mojave Desert. Ancient trees and early man are represented throughout the park by areas of petrified wood and 3,000 year-old Indian petroglyph.
