I had planned on leaving the Valley of Fires this morning but when I woke up I couldn't think of a good reason to leave. The place is quiet and peaceful, its not crowded, it's only nine dollars a night for electricity and water, and wherever I would've ended up had I left probably wouldn't be any better so I re-upped for two more nights.
I think another reason I didn't leave is even though I try to live in the moment and always enjoy where I'm at and what I'm doing right now. It's getting close to when I will start heading back to Colorado and my mind is beginning to wander away from my Winter travels, and slide into looking forward to Summer in Denver with my family.
So when I start heading North this week mentally I'll be leaving Winter travels behind and looking forward to Summer, which means wherever I stay on the 4 or 5 days it takes me to get back to Denver, instead of being fun places, in my mind they'll just be a stopover on my way to somewhere else.
More flowers that like to grow in lava.
I don't know what kind of wildflower this is but it's very delicate, and grows on a plant that looks like a weed. Looking at the weed you would never realize it could produce something this beautiful.
