I wanna go here!

Your Daily Escape

Trek the Valley of Fire

While the Valley of Fire may sound like another Sin City, 
we swear this Nevada state park's name stems only from 
the acres of fiery-colored sandstone (or perhaps the 
scorching temps in summer). Located just six miles from 
Lake Mead and 55 miles northeast of Vegas, it's here that 
Trekkies flock to see the spot where Captain James T. Kirk 
fell from intergalactic grace in the film Star Trek Generations
Nevada's oldest and largest state park shelters 3,000-year-old 
Indian petroglyphs and sits on 34,880 acres of spectacular 
red, orange, and yellow sandstone formations, which, as the 
sun sets, seem to ignite in flames.
