Even though I knew we would be hiking through the desert, I still wanted to play with my Sephora goodies the purchased the previous day. Hey, I was feeling glam :)
Fresh Soy Face Cream, Sephora Brush, Tarte Lip Stain, Kat Von D Ludwig Eyeshadow Palette
I generally don't play around with eye shadow colors, but I loved the soft greens of the KVD palette.We headed out to the Valley of Fire in the morning. Courtesy of the park's website, here is a quick summary of the location:
"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. Popular activities include camping, hiking, picnicking and photography."
Aron drove us out to the park :)
We stopped at a large valley right before the park entrance. A nice family was snapping photos as well, and we took turns taking each others picture.
I gasped when I saw the red sandstone-the photos really don't do it justice!
Here are some photos of us in the "honeycomb" formations.
The petroglyphs blew my mind. I love imagining what these images really mean, what stories they are trying to tell....
After the Valley of Fire, I subjected poor Aron to the mall ( I was searching for brown tights to no avail). Afterwards, we headed back to the room to freshen up before dinner.
I tried to get a cute pic of my outfit, but the indoor lighting was a nightmare. Wearing a shrug, Tripp dress, and a Perlina forest green clutch. I really need a decent camera. Sigh....
We walked over to the Venetian for dinner at Bouchon. I can't really say enough good things about this restaurant. Aron's brother recommended it to us when we were on our honeymoon 3 years ago. I was worried about the "snooty" factor, but I always feel very at ease at Bouchon. 5 stars all the way. I am part French, so I love cheese very,very much. And there steak and fries is out of control.
I made Aron take a photo of the cheese.
Here are some rad Winter Wonderland nuggets outside of the Venetian.
Thank you for reading this photo obnoxious post!
