relatively calm but very hot

We had wanted to drive out to the Valley of Fire the day before but since it rained in the morning we opted to do shopping instead. So today we drove north to this park. But Saffy wanted to go back to the outlets and see if he could recover his sunglasses. He couldnt find them but we did some more shopping. For lunch we drove back to Vegas, to our favorable cafe at Wynn. The soup and sandwiches there are very good, although expensive (everything at Wynn is expensive!). We caught the last of the Portugal vs France game and saw, sadly, Portugal losing. Then we made our way to the Valley of Fire. It wasnt a bad decision to go there in the late afternoon as the day was clearer and hotter than the previous days. We stopped at the campground near the Arch Rock to have our picnic juice and saw some incredible rock formations. Then we stopped at the Atlatl Rock to view the Petroglyhps. I stayed behind in the nice AC'd van!

Today was truly a day at the desert. The air was stuffy and hot and I realized I no longer like hot weather.
