Bowl of Fire is a small area in Lake Mead NRA that is just one of several extensions of Valley of Fire, although it’s less convenient to get to. It’s made up of the very cool Aztec Sandstone that the Colorado River cut through long ago, separating these formations from similar rocks on the other side of the river including Whitney Pockets and Little Finland.
Getting there involves a few miles of sandy off road travel and then a mile of cross country walking. The area is very randomly spread out across three miles, so once you make it to the beginning of the outcrops, expect to walk much farther in whichever direction looks interesting. I was only there for a few hours and I feel like I barely scratched the surface. I’m looking forward to another trip this winter.
I took one last break by this other delicate arch. Backpack for scale in the other picture. Do not climb on the arches if you visit. They will break.
