Valley of Fires Can Be Seen From Space | New Mexico Travel Guide

In south-central New Mexico, some 25 kilometers (15 miles) north of White Sands National Monument and just west of Carrizozo, you will find a very large lava flow across the New Mexico desert landscape and highway. The lava is the Carrizozo Malpais, a massive volcanic lava flow left over from volcanic activity that occurred several thousand years ago. The Valley of Fire is so large you can see it from space. The Valley of Fires recreation area is located immediately adjacent to the Malpais Lava Flow. Where you will find day use, along with tent and RV camping.
