Situated 80 km northeast of Las Vagas and sharing a boundry with the Lake Mead National Recreation Area in the State of Nevada, USA, the Valley of Fire is Nevada's largest State Park and also the State's oldest as it was established in 1935.
A popular attraction for locals and visitors alike, the main attractions in the Valley of Fire State Park are the large collection of petroglyphs and the interesting geological formations.
Molded out of the red sandstone by Mother Nature herself through wind and water, the Valley of Fire plays host to a series of interesting rock formations with equally as interesting names such as Arch Rock, Elephant Rock, Mouse's Tank, Seven Sisters and The Beehives.
Petroglyphs are present throughout the Valley of Fire, however, Atlatl Rock and Mouse's Tank are among the most accessible. Though it is unclear as to what the various symbols stand for, it seems apparent that they tell a story or provide instruction for whoever was following. ...More information below photos...
