Here are the pictures from the roadtrip last year around Thanksgiving and Christmas.  There were too many pics to sort, edit and upload, finally got time to publish them.  There's nothing much to write about them since they're all flogged to death sorta places.  Hope you guys like the pictures...

A Rainy Day In Valley Of Fire

After visiting the Valley of Fire State Park an year ago on bright sunny day, I got to visit it again on rainy day and I must confess it wasn't so bad as I had imagined.
