The Beehives - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT
The Beehives are domed and striated sandstone formations. This panorama was taken from the base of the Beehives, showing some of the weathering that the sandstone has suffered, which has produces tortured arches and hollows in the rocks. The Beehives are not small. See the people in the image to have a sense of scale. This is the place where people who visit the Valley of Fire stop and go 'wow'. It will not be the last.

There is a car park right by the Beehives, allowing very easy access. Visitors have great fun exploring these sandstone domes and taking pictures hiding in the massive hollows carved into the rock. The red sandstone domes emerge dramatically from the valley floor. There is a dramatic panoramic view over the surrounding area from the top of the Beehives. Also close to the Beehives are the Arch Rock and Atlatl Rock.
