The Valley of Fire derives its name from
red sandstone formations, formed from great shifting sand
dunes during the age of dinosaurs, 150 million years ago.
Complex uplifting and faulting of the region, followed by
extensive erosion, have created the present landscape.
Prehistoric users of the Valley of Fire included the
Basket Maker people and later the Anansazi Pueblo farmers
from the nearby fertile Moapa Valley. Span of approximate
occupation has been dated from 300 B.C. to 1150 A.D.
Their visits probably involved hunting, food gathering,
and religious ceremonies. Fine examples of rock art left
by these ancient peoples can be found at several sites
within Valley of Fire State Park.
