Photographer's Note

Nevada's Valley of the Fire has a panoramic viewpoint of the park's heart at Rainbow Vista. This is a telephoto view of the sandstone erosion lines. Originally over 150 million years ago, great shifting sand dunes dominated here. Upheaving and surface movements raised the fossilized sand dunes and sedimentary rock. The exposure to erosion over the millenium created the features of the Valley of the Fire.
