My newsletter issue #113 - Secrets of the Nevada Desert spotlights the many strange red sandstone formations in a place called Little Finland, also known as Hobgoblins’ Playground or Devil’s Fire. Located fourteen miles east of the eastern entrance into Nevada’s Valley of Fire State Park. This area is on the other side of Lake Mead in a remote part of the Nevada desert. The nearest town with restaurants and lodging is Mesquite, Nevada. Four-wheel-drive is recommended. Detailed directions with GPS coordinates are supplied, along with thirty photographs of the bizarre formations. If you love photographing the deserts of the Southwest, you must add this place to your list. Four-wheel drive is recommended but a high-clearance vehicle will get you through the sandy washes to the parking area at the edge of a red rock mesa. It’s a 5-minute walk to this strange sculpture.
