Valley of Fire consists of bright red Aztec sandstone outcrops nestled in gray and tan limestone mountains. The sandstone is from the Jurassic period and is the remnant of the sand left behind by the wind after inland seas subsided and the land rose.

We entered the park from the Lake Mead side and drove through the Valley of Fire. Really cool rock formations - deep red and white strata, with some interesting short hikes and a couple of side roads too. Don't miss Elephant Rock - it really looks like an elephant! Great side trip if you are in Vegas. Don't forget to pay your state park fee if entering from the back.

Beautiful drive through the Valley of Fire State Park. Many short trails to enjoy all along the road.
