Blogs from Valley of the Fire State Park, Nevada, United States, North America


Valley of Fire pretty much sums up 2020. Took a couple of days off and visited The Valley of Fire National Park. Visited Mike a couple of days beforehand in Vegas. 2020 has been a year of shifting phases... The Valley of Fire was beautiful. My plan to camp out for a couple of days didn't happen, but that is expected when camping in an American State Park....... read more

Eigentlich wollte ich heute nur ein bissl Las Vegas erkunden und erst am nächsten Tag in den Valley of Fire National Park fahren. Da der Wetterbericht für Dienstag aber wechselhaft ist, mache ich mich heute auf in den Park. Dort gibt es sensationelle Felsformationen, die über 100e Millionen Jahre entstanden sind, als dort 2 x Ozeane waren, die für die verschiedenfärbigen Ablagerungen verantwortlich waren. Bei der jetzigen Trockenheit kaum zu glauben, dass hier mal etwas nass war … Nach dem Eingang zum Park sind gleich mal die Beehives, 2 Steine, die aussehen wie Bienenstöcke. Als ersten Trail gehe ich dann den White Domes Trail. Was soll ich noch sagen, wieder ein super Erlebnis. Die Wanderung dauert ca eine Stunde. Im Laufe des Tages folgen noch kleinere Wanderungen in der Gegend des Rainbow Vista und beim Elephant ... read more

The most beautiful, spiritual and romantic place all wrapped up in one. The scenery is dramatic and awesome. Not as big as the Grand Canyon but somehow more humbling in our opinion. This place is on an Indian reservation. Finished off the day at our very first Mexican restaurant just outside of Vegas. a great place, lots of free corn chips and salsa and guacamole (nothing like the ones you buy in OZ). There was live entertainment (a Mexican guy on guitar singing national songs) and good beer and meals. It was way too much food, very heavy and I don;t think any of us can face a Mexican meal again in a hurry but it was a fantastic experience nonetheless. Back to the Luxor, room shown. read more

Dedicated in 1935, Valley of Fire is Nevada's oldest state park. It is located only 50 miles northeast of Las Vegas. The rough floor and jagged walls of the park contain brilliant formations of eroded sandstone and sand dunes more than 150 million years old. These features, which are the centerpiece of the park's attractions, often appear to be on fire when reflecting the sun's rays. Valley of Fire State Park is located in the Mojave Desert of southern Nevada about 50 miles northeast of Las Vegas. It abuts Lake Mead National Recreation Area at the Virgin River confluence. It lies in a basin 4 miles wide by 6 miles long, 15 miles southwest of Overton, Nevada. Its elevation varies between 2,000 and 2,600 feet. Climate Typical low desert conditions exist. Winters are mild with temperatures ... read more

We rode our convertible car through the desert with the top down and froze our butts off. But it was worth it - the red desert was amazing. I loved the petroglyphs the best!... read more

"What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas." I've visited Las Vegas so many times in the last 6 years, I cannot possibly offer any new stories with you. On Friday morning, I jogged 5+ miles from Venetian, past Mandalay Bay, to the I-15 entrance and came back. We dined at Bouchon in Venetian (though the foie gras was good, everything else was overrated) on Friday night and T-Bones Chopshop (excellent rib eye steaks) at Red Rock Casino (20 miles from the strip). My most enjoyable part of the weekend came on Saturday morning where 8 of us had arranged to head over to Valley of Fire State Park (50 miles from Vegas; near Lake Mead) and rent ATV's for 3 hours. Mind you, I had never been on a motorbike, let alone an ATV before ... read more

First Friday! Or something. We explored Lake Mead today. Interesting to say the least. Lake Mead was formed by Hoover Dam, which is itself approximately 700 feet tall. Read: the dam backed up enough water to make a big, big lake. We stopped at Calville Point and Echo Bay. Calville Point was by far the most interesting. The first thing I noticed there was that the water is down about 70 down from its normal level. That does make sense though, considering that this is the fifth year of a decent drought out here. But the really interesting part of Calville Point is that it was named after a little town that used to exist before the dam created the lake. Originally the town was supposed to be a shipping and freighting town, but with the ... read more
