Fire Cave - Windstone Arch - Valley of Fire

Fire Cave, sometimes referred to as Windstone Arch, can be found in Valley of Fire State Park, about 1 hour from Las Vegas, Nevada. The “Windstone Arch” is located on the gravel loop near the campground. The arch is in a mini wind tunnel formed out of Sandstone rock. It's a standalone rock formation start looking inside the cavity of the rock where the wind and erosion has removed the rock base.

When i crawled inside the little cave i noticed how small it was (i'm probably too big for places like this) and could hardly move once being inside of it. I used a silver light reflector in the background to give me some light on the little arch and some light in the foreground.
