Day 4: Valley of Fire, Little Finland
We left the motel early and enjoyed the sunrise at the Rainbow Vista in the Valley of Fire. We had our first encounters with wild colors and rock-formations and strolled through the area. Later on, we hiked the White Domes Trail, and visited the Windstone Arch.
In the afternoon, we headed for Little Finland ( http://www.isaczermak.com/nevada-little-finland.html ). The journey was much longer than expected and occassionally really rough. We had to be very careful because of huge rocks on the “road” that forced us to slow, and patches of sand where we had to be be quick to avoid getting stuck. But in the end we made it. We prepared the car for the night (inflatable matresses, sleeping-bags...) and spent the time until sunset exploring and phtographing the terrific shapes of red rock.
