This is the other face of the Valley of Fire in Nevada State Park. If you have enough time and dare to try the unknown, it’s time to explore a small abandoned canyon. Find an alien-face shaped rock, or one resembling a bird or a dragon, let your imagination run wild!
There are several parking lots along the main road. Just stop your car at any of them, take a look around and head toward something interesting. Do not climb if you find a steep rock or a deep canyon, bypassing is better! It’s pretty hard to get lost because the road is visible from almost everywhere if you don’t go farther than a quarter mile. This distance is plenty enough to find a few unbelievable rock formations. Always watch your step on this terrain!
Very important: Take lots of water with you! You will need for an hour, at least 0.5 litre/person. The Summer temperature late in the afternoon can be as high as 45°C (113°F) in the shade, so the best time to visit the park in the Summer months is early morning (7 am – 11 am). Later the temperature is pretty unbearable.
