Photograph taken at “Valley of Fire” Nevada by Robert Swetz 2-5-2011 “Rock Art” Valley of Fire by Robert (Vegas Bob) Swetz & Sherry Our daughter Sherry and I spent the afternoon hiking around “Valley of Fire” only 45 minutes from Las Vegas Nevada. Temperature was around 70 degrees and while hiking Sherry kept telling me it was HOT! Photograph of Sherry at “Valley of Fire” Nevada taken by Robert Swetz 2-5-2011 We took over one hundred photographs of “Rock Art” done by the Native Americans over 4000 years ago. The photo below is just one of many that I will be using for a new book I will be publishing some time in the Summer of 2011. Photograph taken at “Valley of Fire” Nevada by Robert Swetz 2-5-2011

PREHISTORY: The Valley of Fire derives it's 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. Other important rock formations include limestones, shales, and conglomerates. Prehistoric users of the Valley of Fire included the "Basket Maker" people and later the Anasazi Pueblo farmers from the nearby fertile Moapa Valley.  The 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, although scarcity of water would have limited the length of their stay. Fine examples of rock art left by the ancient peoples...
One Million B.C. Movie Location at “Valley of Fire” Nevada Parts of Movie One Million B.C. were filmed at “Valley of Fire” Nevada only 45 minutes from Las Vegas. When I grew up back in the 60s I had a poster of this beautiful woman on the wall of my bedroom, can anyone please tell me who this woman is. She was in the movie “One Million B.C., and was wearing a animal fur bikini. It’s been so many years since this movie came out that I have forgotten her name. Please note: Robert Swetz did not take this photograph above, but he wishes he had! - The locations used for One Million B.C. included the Vasquez Rocks Natural Area Park in Agua Dulce, California; the Valley of Fire State Park in Overton, Nevada; and Iverson Ranch in Chatsworth, California.
"Valley of Fire" is less than one hour from Las Vegas Nevada, and I spent around 2 hours there today hiking around and capturing the moment. I have been to "Valley of Fire" many times and every time I go it's like a new adventure, and very-very beautiful. I shot about 30 minutes of video at "Valley of Fire" today and her is a short clip of only a small portion (Petrogyphs) on the rock walls.

                            About 50 miles northeast of Las Vegas, near the little town of Overton, is an oasis in the the desert!  Truly this is the Valley of Fire!  This awesome area is only 6 miles from Lake Mead  and is one of Nevada's largest and oldest state parks.  Open year round the park touts camping and picnicking as some of its favorite things to do.   There is also a visitors center.  As you can see from the photo a little renovation is going on but it does not disturb the tranquelity and peacefulness of the Valley of Fire.Read also:Valley of Fire infoValley of Fire Park Map

I took this photo a couple of weeks ago in a small town in Southern Nevada called Overton. Overton is in Clark County in an area called Moapa Valley with a total population of less that 7,000. I was there checking on some land I have listed for sale. It is about 45 min. North East of Las Vegas, the best way to describe it is; "Conservative Family Values!" There is only one major market/grocery store in the area and on a Sunday afternoon this is what I found!I think they forgot "Potato Chips"Don't they know prostitution is illegal in Clark County?It just made me laugh!!
