Photograph America Newsletter on Secrets of the Nevada Desert
 
Many strange red sandstone formations cover a landscape called "Little Finland," also known as "Hobgoblins' Playground" or "Devil's Fire." These little-known formations are located in a remote part of the Nevada desert. The nearest large town is Mesquite, Nevada. Four-wheel-drive is recommended but a high-clearance vehicle will take you there. The formations face the setting sun and are in the shadow of a mountain to the east in the morning. Have breakfast in Mesquite and depart at sunrise. If you love photographing the deserts of the Southwest, you must add this place to your list.
