  5. Less than an hour NE of Las Vegas is Valley of Fire that has rock formations called Beehives. They look a lot like Paw Hole.

    I really believe that these images are better than being there… It should be on NG travel series. Thank you so much, Michael!

  9. Great shots of an interesting place! I love sandstone formations. The best I can find in Big Bend are the so-called hoodoos. These are quite enjoyable.
