Valley of Fire State Park in Nevada is a great place to visit. Around every corner and every bend the desert landscape has been shaped by wind water and time. Valley of Fire is 55 miles from Las Vegas and well worth a visit with or without a camera.
I became aware of this park after seeing images of the Fire Wave. On my journey to the Fire Wave there were many other spectacular features to photograph. My best guess is the rock formation in this photo is a Igneous Intrusion similar to the Devils Tower in Wyoming. I've done a bit of searching to see if I can find any information on this specific feature in the park with no luck. Let me know if you have any details.
