A single image HDR of the Valley of Fire using Photomatix Pro.

I added a ND Grad layer to the sky in PS to darken the sky a tad.

WOW, great sky and the road leads the eye right toward it.

HDR at work here for sure. I like the modest surreal look for this image Michael. Bringing in all that extra detail into the shadows was handling well here. The road as a leading line works great I like the sign. Bringing more detail into the sky was a good move.

I would have liked to see the rest of the rock cropped along the lower edge.
