In the third and final part of this mini USA road trip I make my way to the Valley of Fire State Park in Nevada, just outside of Las Vegas.

I start the video off in Death Valley National Park where incredibly, in one of the driest places in North America, it was raining.

In the video, I often referred to the benefit of the rain which is it reveals all the beautiful colours in the mountains – particularly the area surrounding Artists Palette. The rain also brought many interesting and rare changes to the landscape which I was able to capture with the camera – particularly the area of Lake Manly and Zabriskie Point.

I then made my way to the Valley of Fire State Park, which is world-renowned for its 40,000 acres of bright red Aztec sandstone outcrops nestled in gray and tan limestone. It also contains ancient, petrified trees and petroglyphs dating back more than 2,000 years.

I really enjoyed my time visiting the Valley of Fire and I think I was quite lucky on my final day as many of the trails were free of footprints as a result of overnight rain.

I also make a quick visit to the Las Vegas Strip and in the video, I show a quick montage of where I explored – admittedly it’s not my sort of place but I found it better than expected and I’m glad I made the effort to visit.

Overall, I really enjoyed these few days of photography. The weather conditions didn’t make it easy but I’m glad I persisted and I’m really pleased with the images I captured.

This is my third and final video in this series to the USA – if you missed the other two episode, I encourage you to take a look.
