An amazing visual treat, The Valley of Fire is a park which features tan limestone formations alongside bright red Aztec sandstone. There are petroglyphs here that date back some 2000 years. The name comes from the fact that when the sun hits the rock formations during certain times of the day, there are sections that do in fact look like they are on fire.
The ancient rock art here is something to behold. Those from Pueblo times were thought to have lived, hunted and farmed in the valley. Their petroglyphs depicting daily activities, beliefs and art can be found throughout the park.
