This 8-hour excursion to the Valley of Fire and the Lost City Museum begins with a Las Vegas hotel pickup. From the famous Vegas Strip, it’s approximately an hour drive north to Valley of Fire State Park.
The aptly named Valley of Fire, well known for its red-colored rock formations, was once the spiritual center of the ancient Anasazi Indians, a great early American civilization. Valley of Fire State Park, the oldest and largest state park in Nevada, covers almost 42,000 acres. This National Natural Landmark gets its name from the red sandstone formations that were formed from great shifting sand dunes during the age of the dinosaurs. These features, which are the centerpiece of the park's attractions, often appear to be on fire when the sun’s rays reflect off of them.
Then discover the Lost City Museum (formerly the Boulder Dam Park Museum), built over and around the foundations of ancient Anasazi Pueblo ruins. Look for priceless artifacts and displays of pottery, baskets, arrowheads, tools, plus mystical ancient Indian petroglyphs and pictographs.
Be sure to bring a camera. This combo tour of early Native American life is truly a photographer’s dream come true.
