Valley of Fire is the Crown Jewel of all "natural" parks, the Valley of Fire is a wonderland of geological rock formations and stunning scenery as spectacular as the glittering casinos of Las Vegas. I've been calling it "The Land of Little Arhes" for sometime now. Valley of Fire State Park is the oldest and largest state park of Nevada. It has existed since 1935. The name Fire Valley derives from the red sandstone formation, which evolved through dune movement 150 million years ago. Folding and erosion took care of the rest and formed the landscape as we know it today. Summers in the Mojave desert are very hot and dry, which is why mostly small bushes and cacti grow here. Lizards, snakes, coyotes, foxes, rabbits and rare desert turtles call the place their home.
