Valley of Fire Features
Outstanding examples of ancient Indian rock art or petroglyphs, including a depiction of
the atlatl (at'-lat-l), a notched stick used to throw primitive spears. The atlatl
was a predecessor to the bow and arrow.
A two-mile scenic loop road provides views of some of the Valley's
most interesting rock formations, such as Arch Rock and Piano Rock.
Unusual sandstone formations weathered by the eroding forces of wind and water.
Historic stone cabins built with native sandstone by the CCC (Civilian Conservation Corps)
in the 1930's as a shelter for passing travelers.
