Redstone Peaks, Lake Mead NRA, Nevada, USA
Nevada

Above our view point rise the jagged Redstone Peaks, the remnants of an ancient volcano torn part millions of years ago by the action of plate tectonics.  Below, the other worldly landscape shows a similarly violent past with the greenish brown of the Muddy Mountains to the north thrown up and over old red Aztec sandstone.

The Redstone Rocks trail is immediately below, opposite the pale gray green limestone ridge between us.  To the north, another outcrop of the Redstone Rocks is visible.  Farthest north, below the peaks of the Muddy Mountains, the Bowl of Fire shows red against the brown green.  If we could see through the Muddy Mountains to the other side, we would glimpse the sister red rocks of Valley of Fire State Park.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
