Panoramic view of Fire Canyon and Silica Domes in Valley of Fire State Park in Nevada. Several of the rock formations in Fire Canyon resemble huge
works of art and gigantic sculptures. As the sun moves 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. According to a sign in the parking area of
Fire Canyon – “In this region, forces within the earth have been powerful enough to cause thousands of feet of surface rock to fold, break, and in some
areas push several miles from their original location. Today, erosion has worn away the top of one great fold, exposing the sharply angles layer of rock,
and creating numerous canyons.”
A 4-hour hiking route with a topographic route map in the Fire Canyon for canyoneer is described in the following website:
