After leaving the Grand Canyon, we headed west to Nevada. We were worried that we would be disappointed after the GC but that was certainly not the case! If you have the chance to visit Valley of Fire- GO! It is a gem. Nestled among huge gray mountains, is this valley of gorgeous fire red formations. We even saw a big-horned sheep! Wonderful examples of petroglyphs as well- quite a few stairs to get there but well preserved works. It was 112 the day we visited so our visit consisted of short looks vs. longer hikes but well work it. Only an hour away from Vegas. Warning- the town of Overton is incredibly small. Don't plan on spending much time there. We had a very comfortable room for the night, but a half-day is all you need.
