Dare I ask WTF happened there?

The Valley of Fire is lots of Red Rock formations which would have been a lot cooler if we hadn't just come from Red Rocks Canyon. They were shooting a movie in Valley of Fire, "Redline". We saw lots of equipment and hot fast cars. We came back from a hike and found they had filmed a chase scene and wrecked a really nice Porsche. They apparently shoot lots of movies and commercials in Valley of Fire. Scenes from Star Trek: Generations, Total Recall, Iron Eagle, Heldorado and many others.??Another movie filmed there in the 50's (or 60's) called "The Professionals" left ruins of a building in an area called the "White Domes". I think they monitor things better now and Hollywood has to clean up the site when they film now. We did a hike up to "Mouse's Tank", a watering hole where a renegade Piute Indian named Mouse hid out from the law. White man would not go into the Valley of Fire and the Indians would not reveal his location. There were lots of petroglyphs in the area.

Oooops.

Is it just me or are there no tracks showing its path?

I see none either but we don't know what angle it slid in from. Looks like the area where Porsche did some of the press shots with Walter Rohrl driving.

I was just at red rock canyon a few weeks ago when I was in Vegas for vacation. The roads in that area are pretty nice.

Haha. Before I saw the damage to the car, I thought it was a press photo.
I think it's so funny how sportscar manufacturers often take press shots on off-road locations. Search for pics of the Lambo Murcielago or the SLK55 AMG to see what I'm talking about.
