Valley of Fire State Park
Mouse's Tank

Sometimes, in sandstone formations, small puddles of water manage to accumulate. They are known locally as "tanks" and those that last long enough are used by animals and humans as water sources. In the 1880s, a renegade indian, known to the settlers as Mouse, used Fire Valley as a hideout. This tank was his water source. Today it is called Mouse's Tank.
