Expert review of Valley of Fire
Want to go to Valley of Fire? There's good news and bad news. The bad, first - it takes over an hour to drive there, and temperatures are sizzling. The good - it's one of the most beautiful places you'll go in your life.
Even devotees of Red Rock Canyon like me can see that Valley of Fire is something special. 36,000 acres of land and 20 miles of road weaving through it. Bright orange sandstone cliffs in the middle of the desert. Ancient petroglyphs inked in the rockface by native Americans. Sandstone arches caused by millennia of erosion. It's really quite incredible and - I don't use the word lightly - breathtaking. If you don't have time to make it to the Grand Canyon, you must make time to visit this state park.
US$10 per car.
