May 1, 2009, Newsletter Issue #208: Valley of Fire

Tip of the Week

This pristine spot is located about 50 miles north of Las Vegas off Highway 15. These stunning sandstone shapes and spires are so very illustrative of the desert Southwest that visitors may feel as if they've viewed this scenery somewhere before. Valley of Fire is a great location for hiking, rock climbing, and simply remarking on the scenery. A hike for everyone is Mouse's Tank is an easy quarter-mile hike from the main road. The tank is really a natural bowl in the rocks where water collects after a rainfall. A longer, but still easy three-mile hike is the one through Fire Canyon. You can spend a few hours at Valley of Fire, or all day, but no matter how long you spend there, chances are you won't forget the scenery anytime soon. The park is open from sunrise to sunset, and the Visitors Center is open daily, 8:30am to 4:30pm. Admission is $5 per vehicle.
