The Valley of Fire
state park had lots of cool rock formations and petroglyphs.
We saw Atlatl Rock, Mouse's Tank, and Petrified Logs.
This picture was taken at Mouse's Tank, which is directly behind us.
From the Valley of Fire
"Named for a renegade Indian who used the area as a hideout in the
1890's. Mouse's tank is a natural basin in the rock where water collects
after rainfalls, sometimes remaining for months. A half-mile round
trip trail leads to Mouse's Tank from the trail head parking area,
passing numerous examples of prehistoric Indian petroglyphs.
There were petroglyphs everywhere, especially along the trail to
Mouse's Tank. We went on a long drive, all the way to views of
Lake Mead, and through lots and lots of desert. Beautiful. We stopped
beside the road at one point when I spotted some wild burros.
