Valley of Fire State Park, Nevada

Less than an hour from the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas, Valley of Fire State Park features spectacular attractions of a very different sort. Magnificent sandstone formations that date back more than 150 million years, along with ancient petroglyphs, draw visitors to this location, the oldest state park in Nevada. The park's wildlife includes bobcats, jackrabbits and coyotes, all nocturnal animals, give new meaning to the term 'nightlife'.

Next come to Zion National Park, famous for its incredible scenery. Hike among enormous cottonwood trees along the Virgin River, then explore its waterfalls and hanging garden. One can't-miss experience is a hike through water in the narrowest section of Zion Canyon, with walls a thousand feet tall and the river sometimes 30 foot wide. Observe the abundant wildlife in the park, including peregrine falcons, mountain lions and grey foxes.

Photograph and take in the views from overlooks such as Sunrise Point, Sunset Point and Bryce Point. Stay on after dark to see the star-filled night sky. Fly home from Las Vegas or Salt Lake City.
