This is THE VALLEY of FIRE NP ,NE of Las Vegas NV.
The place will suck the moisture from you in NO TIME FLAT ... Beautiful Scenery especially in the Spring ( Early-Mid April ) when flowers & grass is blooming. Must have had 2 gallons of water in 4 hours of being out there.
The Guy in shorts on the road is Little Brother.

Some of Tammy's stomping grounds. It is a beautiful place and I love it because it has that landscape that is dangerous and beautiful at the same time. Your pov and composition so beautifully let us see so much of the terrain. I love the colors, so pretty, The contrast of the sky and the land. Gorgeous lighting. Enjoy that car looking like a little bug in this vast land. Awesome look my friend. #10245232
