There’s just something about the American Southwest that needs to be seen to be believed. To those who have never hit the open roads of the desert or felt the hot sun and scorching heat on their skin as they put road between themselves and civilization, a place like the Valley of Fire might just be another creatively named tract of desert. But for those who have ridden through this area on the rumbling seat of a bike as part of motorcycle tours in Las Vegas, NV, the Valley of Fire is a sight to behold like no other!
Valley of Fire State Park is considered to be the oldest state park in Nevada, earning its right as a national landmark in 1968. With more than 42,000 acres of sprawling rock formations, scorched earth, cacti and rising cliff peaks, this is unforgiving land and more than a few people have ridden through the park looking only to find the other side as quickly as possible.
But those who drive through in covered cars or inside of a tour bus don’t get to see what those people on motorcycle tours in Las Vegas, NV get to see. The land is more than just barren and desolate with ugly rocks and stationary horizons—it’s a dried up sea from centuries long past, with as many unique rock formations as unseen critters and serene imagery that looks like something out of a photographer’s portfolio at every turn!
