14112912241_57585b44ce_bValley of Fire is Nevada’s oldest and largest state park, dedicated in 1935. Ancient trees and early man are represented throughout the park by areas of petrified wood and 3,000 year-old Indian petroglyphs, both easily accesible to the most timid of hikers. Exit 75 is just 55 miles northeast of Las Vegas off Interstate 15. The historic cabins, pictured above, were built with Valley of Fire sandstone by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) in the 1930’s for travelers.
