Las Vegas: Mojave, Red Rock Sign and 7 Magic Mountains Tour

1. Las Vegas: Mojave, Red Rock Sign and 7 Magic Mountains Tour

The California Mojave desert is the most famous desert in USA. Red Rock Canyon in Clark County, Nevada, is about 15 miles west of Las Vegas (pickup starts from 7 AM), and is easily seen from the Las Vegas Strip. The conservation area showcases a set of large red rock formations, a collection of sandstone peaks and walls called the Keystone Thrust. The walls are up to 3,000-feet high, making them a popular hiking and rock-climbing destination. The highest point in the park is La Madre Mountain at 8,154 feet. State Route 159 cuts through an unnamed but often-visited valley; it is commonly, but mistakenly, referred to as Red Rock Canyon. The Wilson Cliffs, or Keystone Thrust, a massive wall of rock, can be seen to the west from SR 159. Internationally renowned Swiss artist Ugo Rondinone’s Seven Magic Mountains is a large-scale, site-specific public art installation located near Jean Dry Lake and Interstate 15, approximately 10 miles south of Las Vegas, Nevada. Comprised of seven towers of colorful, stacked boulders standing more than 30-feet high, Seven Magic Mountains is a creative expression of human presence in the desert, Seven Magic Mountains punctuates the Mojave with a poetic burst of form and color. Seven Magic Mountains was produced by the Nevada Museum of Art and Art Production Fund. The exhibition opened May 11, 2016, and was originally scheduled to be on view for two years. Due to the incredible success of the piece since its opening, artist Ugo Rondinone has expressed a strong desire to keep the artwork on view at its current site.

From Las Vegas: Day Trip to Mount Charleston Resort

2. From Las Vegas: Day Trip to Mount Charleston Resort

Benefit from morning pick-up from your hotel (pickup starts from 7 AM) in Las Vegas and enjoy a relaxing ride through the desert, passing Joshua trees and cacti on the way. As your vehicle starts its ascent into the mountains, note how the vegetation turns greener and the temperatures start to turn cooler. Look out for pine trees, juniper, manzanita, and bristlecone pines. Mount Charleston enjoys an elevation of 7,500 feet, meaning the temperature and surroundings are very pleasant during the summer. There are 50 miles of hiking trails to be explored during summer, whilst the area is known for its ski slopes in winter.

Right on time pickup. Small group in a comfortable SUV. Excellent driver although he had limited knowledge of the history of Red Rock Canyon. We were given plenty of time at 7 Magic Mountains and at several stops along Red Rock tour. Even able to hike back into the rocks/trails. Great tour if you only have a half day to get into the desert and mountains

We had such a fantastic day. Robert was a lovely guide who was very patient and accommodating. The sights were beautiful and we had a wonderful day. Thank you so much!
