The easy access, great climate, clear dry high desert air and sunny days almost every day makes for easy photography that nearly all ends up a keeper.
This place is a real treat and easy to do on a Vanabode trip except in the hottest summer months.
Don't forget you can purchase a national park pass for one year and gain unlimited access to all national parks all over the United States for free for the rest of the year. If you visit more than one per year it pays to buy the annual pass.
I would recommend visiting during the winter months as campfires here are indescribably beautiful against the soft red rock giants.
These rock cliffs are deceptively small looking in a picture until you see a person standing on one of them like I am doing in the picture above. Valley of Fire Nevada is quite like a trip to mars containing many large red rocks like that of Red Rock Canyon. The entire area has a ringing ambiance to it. It's easy to imagine the Native Americans who once thrived here. It was convenient to camp for free in nearby blm land as long as we wanted. The blm land provides a perfect base camp for visiting the Valley of Fire State Park one weekend and the Las Vegas strip the next.
This picture shows the nice solid covered areas built for visitors to use to get out of the sun, have lunch, and relax. The sand can blow in high winds but otherwise is "clean" and not hard on the feet. The soil will NOT easily come out of any socks or clothing however. It stains almost permanently.
