Beautiful Rock Formations

Beautiful  Nevada rock formations


Nevada is full of long, dusty desert roads, but there is great scenic beauty in this State as well. For example, as you drive to Great Basin National Park the change in scenery is quick and in no time you are among old trees. The Bristlecone Pine is rumored to be among the oldest tree species alive today.

Located on "the outskirts of nowhere," Big Rock Wilderness sits at 6,844 feet of elevation, 121 miles from Ely, Nevada and 141 miles from Las Vegas. Here large boulder fields are a treat for climbers, and if you wish to enjoy a night sky devoid of city lights or pitch a tent in true desert wilderness, Big Rocks is where you can do it.

The Valley of Fire State Park is less than an hour away from Las Vegas, but it feels remote and unspoiled by the chaos of the strip. The rock formations here, as well as in nearby Red Rock Canyon, are incredible. There are many eye-popping National Historic Landmarks in Nevada. These significant landmarks span literally thousands of years of Nevada geologic history.
