Lake Mead’s Bowl of Fire is divided into two regions: Southern (Lower) Bowl of Fire and Northern (Upper) Bowl of Fire. Each region has over 100 unique, artistic sandstone sculptures. Some are totally breathtaking!

The purpose of this adventure is to document by photo and video as many of the sandstone sculptures in the Southern Bowl of Fire as possible in a day. You’ll see the results in the video and soon, the slideshow on this page!

It was 95 degrees on this day and I was surprised to find my camera/phone temporarily shut down due to being overheated. I quickly developed a phone cooling strategy. Ability to take photos resumed first, then video filming. For this reason, the majority of the sandstone sculptures were documented by photos, which I edited into the video. Yet there is also some awesome video, including the surprise appearance of an active bee hive constructed within a crack in one of the sandstone formations!

Directions to Route Starting Point | Southern Bowl of Fire | Detailed View of Sandstone Sculptures | Lake Mead National Recreation Area, Nevada

Enter Lake Mead National Recreation Area and take Northshore Road to the mile 16 marker. Park there and continue up Bowl of Fire Road on foot, or drive Bowl of Fire Road which is well graded and good for 2WD vehicles except when there has been flooding. If you have trouble making the first brief dip on the road into the wash, you may need to walk Bowl of Fire Road. Just know that the initial dip into the wash is the most difficult stretch (it’s only one short descent) that you will face on Bowl of Fire Road.
