Shimmering red color surrounds Fire Canyon in the US State of Nevada’s oldest national park. The Valley of Fire Conservation Area was founded in 1935 and the valley derived its name from the fascinating blazing red color of its sandstone.
Several of the rock formations in Fire Canyon resemble huge works of art and gigantic sculptures. As the sun moves almost imperceptibly across the sky, it continuously transforms the magnificent kaleidoscopic colors of the rocks below. The desert is illuminated in brilliant reds, browns and yellows while the rocks glow with a fiery intensity.
The undulating terrain, the rocks and the arid conditions are all silent witnesses of the origin and creation of this legendary desert landscape.
