A lovely start to our trip - early morning walk (too hot to go later than about 9am!) with gorgeous views and stunning colours. Saw some big horn sheep which was a bonus.

We enjoyed riding through the park BUT be aware that it is hot there in August! My phone actually shut down due to the heat! There are some water sources at some of the stops but the water itself is WARM. Visually, the park is worth your time. Don't miss the rock drawings, very interesting.

We drove to Las Vegas so we had a car.. During the day we were looking for something to do other than sit in a casino so we went for a drive along the north shore road (national recreation fee area) to Valley of Fire. I have a NP pass so the drive was free. This road is a through... More

We camped out at this park for 3 days and 2 nights. The first day was a bit stormy with dramatic skies, refreshing showers, and cooling clouds. The last two days were pretty scorching, which meant that our hikes were done in the mornings and evenings so that we could avoid the blistering heat of the midday sun. We saw... More

A nice little national park easy to acces from Vegas. It took approx. one hour to drive. It was not crowdy and really beautiful. The rocks were completely red and magnificant in the sun. Make sure to visit the visitor centre and take your time to do some hikes.

Been there 3 times and it never grows old. Well worth the hour's drive. Breathtaking views and mother nature at its best. The Indian drawings are amazing. The hike to Mouse's Tank brings you back in time. Stop at a convenience store and get a styrofoam cooler for plenty of cold water and snacks before you come. As we were... More

Having 'done' the Grand Canyon, Yosemite, Sedona, monument valley and zion national park, we thought the valley of fire would struggle to impress us, but impress it did. You find yourself wanting to take a photo at every turn, and although there are lots of pull ins, there just aren't enough. I'd love to see it at sunrise or sunset... More
