Valley Of Fire- Overton, Nevada U.S.A.
Valley of Fire State Park, covering an area of almost 42,000 acres, is the oldest and largest state park in Nevada, and was designated as a National Natural Landmark in 1968. It derives its name from red sandstone formations, formed from great shifting sand dunes during the age of the dinosaurs. These features, which are the centerpiece of the park’s attractions, often appear to be on fire when reflecting the sun’s rays.
The displays, at the Lost City Museum, of pottery, baskets, arrowheads, tools, mystical ancient Indian petroglyphs and pictographs, authentic Pueblos, and other priceless artifacts are a wonderful sight to see. This combination tour of early Native American life is truly the Jewel of the American Southwest and a photographer’s dream come true.
