Valley of Fire- Nevada's first state park

If you travel north from Vegas along interstate 15 for about 35 miles you will come to a turnoff for the Valley of Fire. Consisting of spectacular sandstone formations that are a delight for the eye. Valley of fire is Nevadas first and largest state park where you can camp and hike in a very unique setting. For a desert setting there is quite a diverse assortment of both plants and animals and there is many examples of early mans occupation with petroglyphs at many spots throughout the park. All in all it is a great way to spend part of an afternoon and when Lynn and I go we usually follow the road through to Lake Mead and loop back to Vegas along its coast.
