Valley of Fire

The Valley of Fire State Park is a complex maze of canyons.  Petroglyphs are abundant. The colors of the sandstone run from cadmium red deep to tinted naples yellow.  As you hike within the narrow walls of the red sandstone the reflective colors surround you and seem to turn the air red.

These are not ancient native american cliff dwellings but are interesting erosional patterns covering only about ten feet of rock wall.
