We arrived around 12:30-1 at Valley of Fire at the Malpais Campground. We set up camp and had lunch. After we'd eaten lunch, we went to explore the area. There's a 1 mile loop walk with signs. The whole area was formed by volcanic activity. It was pretty cool. So we took the mile loop and enjoyed reading about the area, the animals that inhabit the area and some of the plants. There are 5 types of bats that live in the area. We hoped to maybe see some of them at night but didn't. I did see a ground squirrel in the distance but no one else saw it.
|My cute girls and I. How I love them! I'm so glad I was able to spend this time with them and see so many amazing things. I'm so blessed to be their mom!|
|I really loved watching Gabby's friendship with Daphne.|
|Our cars...thankful for such a dependable car. We've had it now for 8 years and it's great!|
|Without a blow dryer and straightener, my hair was a bit crazy the whole trip. But it was worth looking a little disheveled to have these experiences!|
|After we had gone exploring, most of the kids wanted to go explore as well.|
|I stayed at camp and watched Davlynn.|
