Bee Hives at the Valley of Fire

Bee Hives Rock Formation

Bee Hives Rock Formation

The Valley of Fire is a State Park of Nevada located 55 miles away from Las Vegas.  The Beehives are sandstone formations that can be found near the west entrance of the park.

The Bee Hives are caused by wind erosion or Aeolian processes. When sand is removed by wind and transported across the desert to form sand dunes, rock surfaces are abraded along the way. The end results are sculpted rocks with unusual shapes due to the artistic work of nature.

While photographing this dreamy landscape, I had the feeling that I was teleported to Planet Mars.
