sunrise at the Valley of Fire State Park in Nevada.
After that adventure, I headed the next boulder over with a carload of Scavengers to hike the White Dome trail.
This trail promised some geocaching (covered in an upcoming post), and some movie history. Many movies and TV shows were shot in the park, including The Professionals, Star Trek Generations (Kirk died in this park), Airwolf (the helicopter was hidden in the park), a scene from Transformers, and many of the outdoor Mars scenes from Schwarzennegger's Total Recall.
I had never hiked a trail this rugged. It proved to be a bit of a physical challenge, but an absolutely amazing experience.
The first feature of note was this set of stone stairs that lead down into a canyon.
After this we drove home. I collapsed into a nap. However the days adventure was not yet over. Stay tuned for some more tales from Nevada during The Great Scavenger Hunt Meetup.
