Discover the spirit and amazing artifacts of the Southwest on this Valley of Fire Tour from Las Vegas! The abundance of stunning rock formations and Indian art (petroglyphs and pictographs) are incredible and countless. This journey back 3,000 years in time is a must-see when visiting Las Vegas. Discover the Great Anasazi “Lost City” Museum which is built over and around the foundations of ancient Anasazi Pueblo ruins.
Valley of Fire State Park, covering an area of almost 42,000 acres, is the oldest and largest state park in Nevada, and was designated as a National Natural Landmark in 1968. It derives its name from red sandstone formations, 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 reflecting the sun’s rays.
The displays, at the Lost City Museum, of pottery, baskets, arrowheads, tools, mystical ancient Indian petroglyphs and pictographs, authentic Pueblos, and other priceless artifacts are a wonderful sight to see. This combination tour of early Native American life is truly the Jewel of the American Southwest and a photographer’s dream come true. You will be moved to your soul on this spiritual and wonder filled adventure.
Valley of Fire + Lost City Museum Tour
At an elevation between 2,000-2,600 feet (610-790 m), the valley abuts the Lake Mead National Recreation Area at the Virgin River confluence. The park entry on Valley of Fire Highway, designated as a Nevada Scenic Byway, passes through the Moapa River Indian Reservation. Although petroglyphs are present throughout the entire park, Mouse’s Tank and Atlatl Rock are two areas where beautifully preserved petroglyphs are in abundance and are relatively easily accessible.
