Tour The Valley of Fire


World-renowned for its 40,000 acres of bright red Aztec sandstone outcrops nestled in gray and tan limestone, and nearby region, The Valley of Fire is only 1 hour outside of Las Vegas. This State Park is a public recreation and nature preservation area covering nearly 46,000 acres and derives its name from red sandstone formations, the Aztec Sandstone, which formed from shifting sand dunes 150 million years ago. The Valley of Fire State Park also contains ancient, petrified trees and petroglyphs dating back more than 2,000 years. A Visitor Center provides exhibits on the geology, ecology, prehistory and history of the park. A perfect off the strip day trip for those who want to see more of surrounding Las Vegas and well worth the drive
