Description

Workshop Description

World-renowned for its 40,000 acres of bright red Aztec sandstone outcrops nestled in gray and tan limestone, Valley of Fire contains ancient, petrified trees and petroglyphs dating back more than 2,000 years. The sandstone is from the Jurassic period and is the remnant of the sand left behind by the wind after inland seas subsided and the land rose. Early man moved into southern Nevada as far back as 11,000 years ago. The most obvious evidence of occupation is the petroglyphs carved into the rocks by the Basketmaker culture about 2,500 years ago, followed later by the Early Pueblo culture. Paiutes were living in this area in 1865 when Mormons settled at nearby St. Thomas.

We will photograph in the following locations:
• Rainbow Vista
• Elephant Rock
• The Cabins
• Petroglyths of Atlati Rock
• The Caves
• Fire Canyon
• The Fire Wave
• Atlati Scenic Loop Road
